Watch Reba, Carrie, Martina, Kacey and JNett Pay Tribute to Dolly Parton With “I Will Always Love You”

Dolly Parton was presented with the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award last night (Nov. 2) at the CMA Awards, but before Dolly accepted her honor for being an iconic artist who has attained the highest degree of recognition, a handful of country’s most talented female artists paid tribute to Dolly with a medley of her hits.

Jennifer Nettles and a cappella group Pentatonix kicked off the medley with “Jolene,” before Reba McEntire took over with “9 to 5.” Kacey Musgraves moved in with “Here You Come Again,” as Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride tackled “I Will Always Love You” with Kacey, Reba and Jennifer lending their vocal prowess.

“Gosh, dang it, Dolly, we love you to pieces,” said Reba before Dolly took the stage for an all-too-brief acceptance speech.

Watch Kacey, Reba, Jennifer, Martina and Carrie perform “I Will Always Love You” below.
