Dolly Parton to Honor Women in Latin Music at Special Latin Recording Academy Event

The two-hour festivities air May 9 on Univision and will celebrate women in Latin music

It has been announced via Taste of Country that on May 9, Dolly Parton will join iconic Latin musical artists including Gloria Estefan, Shaila Durcal, Alejandra Guzmán, Vikki Carr, and more for Univision-aired “Latin GRAMMY Celebra Ellas y su Música” at 8 p.m. ET. The two-hour event hosted by Becky G, Luis Fonsi, and Thalía will celebrate women in Latin music.

If thinking that pop-country and Latin music do not share more in common than North Mexico’s norteña subgenre, recent moments like the previously mentioned Becky G partnering with Kane Brown for the 2018 single “Lost in the Middle of Nowhere” would prove otherwise.

At the event itself, Parton will deliver a special message to the audience and introduce a Mexican regional performance that features “Queen of Ranchera Music” Aída Cuevas and singer/actor Ana Bárbara. As well, Chiquis Rivera and Becky G will perform their well-regarded Spanish-language and cumbia-inspired twist on Parton’s legendary 1974 hit “Jolene.”
