Beyoncé may have made headlines with her performance at last night’s Country Music Association Awards, but not even Queen B could steal the spotlight from the one and only, Dolly Parton.
The country music icon was one of the night’s biggest honorees, taking home the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award. When Parton went on stage to accept her award, she couldn’t help but make some high-larious jokes.
“To be receiving the Willie Nelson Award, this is an absolute high for me,” she said, laughing as the crowd erupted into cheers. “For Willie to have a high-chievement award, I mean how proper is that? ‘Cause he’s had some highs that border on historic, I can tell you that.”
In all seriousness, Parton added, “I really am very proud to receive this.”
