Many country artists came together to pay tribute to the late Kenny Rogers during the CMT’s GIANTS Kenny Rogers: A Benefit For MusiCares. Dolly Parton gave one of the most emotional performances of the night. It was especially emotional because Dolly and Kenny were good friends for many years. Dolly decided to sing Kenny’s song “Sweet Music Man.”

She sat with just her guitar and a microphone, surrounded by beautiful candles. She dressed in all white. The gorgeous singer crooned the song that goes, “Oh, but nobody sings a love song quite like you do / Oh, and nobody else can make me sing along.”

Margaret Comeaux, a CMT executive producer, released a statement that read, “Kenny Rogers transcended genres and generations with his musical versatility, legendary collaborations, and timeless appeal, and we’re honored to pay tribute to his legacy.”
