The first star-studded round of performers for MusiCares Person of the Year Tribute honoring Dolly Parton have been announced. 

Leon Bridges, Lauren Daigle, Norah Jones, Shawn Mendes, P!nk, Mark Ronson and Chris Stapleton are all set to perform at the gala. Parton herself will top off the evening’s performances.

Parton is being honored at the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year for her creative accomplishments and longtime support of multiple charitable causes.

Proceeds from the annual tribute will go to the MusiCares charity founded by the Recording Academy to support music-associated individuals in times of financial, medical and personal need. Over the last fiscal year, the 1989-established charity provided over $6.5 million dollars to around 8,600 members of the industry.

The MusiCares event will take place on Feb. 8 in Los Angeles during GRAMMY Week. GRAMMY Week concludes with the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on Feb. 10 and will be broadcast live on CBS at 8:00 p.m. ET.
