Parton was joined by Kelsea Ballerini for a performance of "Big Dreams and Faded Jeans."

Kelly Clarkson also offered a tribute to Parton, performing a rendition of her song "I Will Always Love You," which Parton said would have made the late Whitney Houston, who famously covered the song proud.

"I was backstage trying not to cry my false eyelashes off," said Parton.
