Dolly Parton to Duet with Katy Perry at ACM Awards

Country icon Dolly Parton and pop star Katy Perry will sing together at next month’s Academy of Country Music Awards, where Parton will receive a special award for her recent television movie about her childhood.

Parton will receive the Tex Ritter Award on April 3 in Las Vegas for last year’s NBC movie “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors.” The honor is given to a movie receiving major exposure featuring country music and previous recipients include “O Brother, Where Art Thou,” ”Walk the Line” and “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” which Parton starred in with Burt Reynolds in 1982.

The 51st annual ACM Awards will air live on CBS from the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Other performers include Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney and Chris Stapleton.
