Miley Cyrus teams up with Shawn Mendes to pay tribute to Dolly Parton at the Grammys

One of the most respectable and prestigious awards for the musical world is the Grammy Awards. Every year, Grammys chose one person who is a legend in the music industry and honor such a person with a tribute performance. This year, the legendary and beautiful, Dolly Parton is in line to be honored at the prestigious Grammy Awards 2019. Speaking of honoring the country singer, no one better to pay a tribute than the Wrecking Ball singer, Miley Cyrus. This year, Miley will be paying a musical tribute to Dolly Parton at the Grammys.

Well, the other great news is that she will not be singing alone but will be teaming up with none other than Shawn Mendes. Miley shared a picture with Shawn on Instagram which hinted at her collaboration with Shawn at the Grammys for the tribute performance.
