The biggest night in music, the Grammy Awards, celebrated its 61st anniversary last night live from Madison Square Garden in New York City. Hosted by Alicia Keys, the evening consisted of warmth, performances, awards and more.

Kacey Musgraves’ Golden Hour took home Album of the Year. Musgraves also won the awards for Best Country Album, Best Country Solo Performance (“Butterflies”), and Best Country Song (“Space Cowboy”).

Kacey Musgraves performed her Golden Hour track “Rainbow.” Musgraves was accompanied by a pianist as she performed the touching ballad. The steps behind her were illuminated with various colors to showcase the song’s title.

Dolly Parton, an eight-time Grammy winner, was serenaded by her goddaughter, Miley Cyrus, Little Big Town, Katy Perry, Maren Morris and Kacey Musgraves. During the opening with Musgraves and Perry, Parton joined the duo to sing her hit, ”Here You Come Again.” Next up was a duet between Parton and Cyrus who sang her 1984 song,” Jolene.” Dolly then sang “Red Shoes” from her 2018 album, Dumplin’ – white wearing a pair of killer red stilettos. At the end of the moving tribute, the artists joined Parton to sing her hit “9 to 5,” written for the 1980 film of the same name that starred Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.

Dan & Shay performed a stripped-down version of “Tequila” with Dan on the guitar and Shay on piano, the latter only leaving his keys to belt one the final note of the song.
