On April 7, Netflix subscribers will be able to watch Dolly Parton: A MusiCares Tribute, which was filmed at the 2019 gala where Dolly Parton was named MusiCares’ Person of the Year ahead of that year’s Grammy Awards. And a Netflix subscription is far cheaper than the $1,000-plus that attendees paid for a ticket to the charity event.
Little Big Town hosted the gala, which featured performances by Chris Stapleton, Katy Perry, Leon Bridges, Miley Cyrus, Shawn Mendes and Yolanda Adams, plus a performance by the country queen herself.
“I am so happy that Netflix is going to be showing the MusiCares tribute to me,” Parton said in a statement. “MusiCares has done so much for the people in this industry and continues to be a beacon of light for those in need. I am so proud and impressed with all of the great artists. It was such a joy and a humbling experience to be able to sit and watch all of the great artists singing songs that I had written or had been a part of. I am so thankful to the Grammys and the people that worked so hard to put this together, and I hope that you enjoy watching it as much as I did.”
Parton was the first country star to be named Person of the Year. She was the seventh female solo artist from any genre to receive the accolade, following Bonnie Raitt, Natalie Cole, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand and Carole King.
As the leading music charity, MusiCares is a safety net supporting people in need who work in the music community.
