Congratulations to Dolly Parton on being chosen for the Grammy's "MusiCares Person of the Year" award. This is pretty amazing - but not shocking when we're talking about Dolly Parton here, right?
Past award recipients have been Sir Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel and Paul Simon which makes Dolly the first country artist to receive the esteemed honor. But maybe the most amazing thing about this award is that out of a total of 27 individual winners, not counting last year’s Fleetwood Mac, only six have been women, including Aretha Franklin.
The 61st annual Grammy Awards will be held Feb. 10, 2019, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
