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

"It doesn't hurt to have some separation", the country songstress exclusively told Us Weekly at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Friday. Actually, this whole weekend has been an exciting thing for me ...

"After all these years I'm still at, and people act like I'm still important", said Parton with her typical humility on the red carpet ahead of the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday night, this year held in Los Angeles. "No one I think deserves to be honored tonight more than Dolly, not just because of her talent, but because of every bit of giving that she does and that's what MusiCares is about".

Parton and Dean tied the knot in May 1966, about two years after meeting for the first time in Nashville.

Parton was the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2011. This year's ceremony is on Sunday.

It's Dolly's first time on the #GRAMMYs stage since 2001 and she's ready to slay!

Parton, 73, also appeared to touch on some of the concerns of the #MeToo movement and sexual misconduct in entertainment and other industries, when she described entering the music business when it was a "man's world".

Dolly Parton has revealed the secret to her five-decade marriage with husband Carl Thomas Dean.

Dolly herself shared her delight about the event, saying, "I am so excited and humbled to be honored as MusiCares Person of the Year". Fellow performers included Cardi B, Brandi Carlile, Dan + Shay, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Diana Ross, and Janelle Monae. J Balvin, Young Thug, Ricky Martin, Arturo Sandoval and Camila Cabello are reportedly opening the show.

Some of the biggest stars from across musical genres joined together to pay tribute to Dolly Parton at the 2019 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif., on Sunday night (Feb. 10). The telecast will be broadcast live on the CBS Television Network at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
