Dolly Parton was celebrated as a major figure in American art at the Kennedy Center Honors program, Sunday night, Dec. 3, in Washington, DC.

Dolly was honored along with singer/songwriter Smokey Robinson, movie director Steven Spielberg and others in receiving the nation’s highest arts award. During the show at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, stars like Reba McEntire and actress Reese Witherspoon paid tribute to Dolly, while Vince Gill and Alison Krauss performed some of Dolly’s best-known numbers, including her classic “I Will Always Love You.” Reba praised Dolly as “a huge influence on me, not to mention every girl in country music for the last 30 years.” The Kennedy Center Honors will air at 8 p.m. Dec. 26 on CBS.
