Parton added that respect, forgiveness and, of course, love play a huge part in keeping the flame alive for many years to come and in making the matrimonial union work.

Dolly Parton was named this year's MusicCares Person Of The Year, and on Friday night there was a whole tribute concert where a whole bevy of artists honored her with performances and speeches.

As we warm up this weekend's Grammy awards host of stars from across the world of music have gathered to pay tribute to eight-item Grammy victor Dolly Parton.

Comedy played a large role in a night of all-star musical performances in Los Angeles to honor Parton for her music and philanthropy, hosted by country group Little Big Town.

She is the first country artist to be saluted in this way in the tribute's 29-year history.

Parton, a native of Tennessee, won her first Grammy in 1978.

"I'm not getting into any of that", she said previous year when David Wright of ABC's "Nightline" kept trying to get her to comment on today's politics.

One of Parton's most admirable attributes is her longevity and this year she gained a special spotlight with the Netflix movie Dumplin' all about a Parton obsessed teen.

"Watching them is sort of like watching porn", Parton said.

Parton was the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2011.

Parton has sold more than 100 million records and helped popularize country music outside the United States, often succeeding in crossing over into pop music.
