Dolly Parton And Katy Perry ACMs Video: Watch ACM Awards Duet Performance!
It was only announced less than two weeks ago that the country music icon would take the stage with the pop star for the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards. After the news broke, Parton wrote on Twitter, “I’ll be collaborating with the ever amazing and oh so talented @katyperry at this years @ACMAwards!”
An ecstatic Perry quoted the tweet and wrote, “MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED. I shall remember though that I am but one sequin on this living legend’s costume!” The special performance marks the first time the two are singing together. But Parton, of course, is no stranger to the ACMs stage.
The music icon is actually a 10-time ACM Awards winner. And Parton’s biographical TV movie, Coat Of Many Colors, is this year’s Tex Ritter Award recipient. The honor is given to a film from the preceding year that “either features or utilizes country music.”
Interestingly, while Perry is at the ACMs, many of her pop peers are currently at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. The singer scored one nomination this year, in the category of Most Meme-able Moment for her Super Bowl performance with “Left Shark.” Gossip Cop would argue that Perry’s duet with Parton is pretty meme-able, too.
