In the clip, we hear Cyrus say: “What an honour to be in this room celebrating the fabulous life and career of my fairy godmother, Dolly Parton.”
Parton starred in a festive Netflix film called Dolly Parton’s Christmas On The Square last year alongside Christine Baranski and Treat Williams. The streaming platform released Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, an eight-part anthology series based on the star’s biggest hits, in 2019.
Earlier this month, Dolly Parton received the coronavirus vaccine that she helped to fund. It was revealed last November that the singer had donated $1million (£721,250) to the successful research behind the development of the Moderna jab.
Speaking to fans in a video before being administered the vaccine, Parton said: “I’m so excited. I’ve been waiting a while. I’m old enough to get it and I’m smart enough to get it.”
She continued: “I’m trying to be funny now, but I’m dead serious about the vaccine. I think we all want to get back to normal, whatever that is. And that would be a great shot in the arm, wouldn’t it, if we could get back to that?”
