Dolly Parton performed her iconic hit “9 to 5” during NBC’s two-hour special, Grand Ole Opry: 95 Years of Country Music, on Sunday, February 14. 

The international superstar and longtime Opry member dazzled the crowd with an energy-filled performance of the GRAMMY-winning hit.

“When they asked if I wanted to become a member in 1969, that was one of the biggest nights of my life. It was sacred to me. It truly was,” Parton shared prior to her performance.

Parton‘s performance was taped on October 12, 2019 when she celebrated 50 years as a Grand Ole Opry member.
