Dolly Parton and Ramones will receive Lifetime Achievement Grammys.

The country singer and the rock group will be honoured for their contribution to music, alongside 'Mary Poppins' singer and musicals star Dame Julie Andrews in a special ceremony on February 12.

Neil Portnow, president of The Recording Academy which is handing out the awards said: "It is a great honour to recognise and celebrate such a distinguished and dynamic group of honourees.

"Their legendary work has left a lasting impression and will continue to influence generations to come."

Dolly - famed for her voluptuous figure -rose to fame in the 1950s, and has had over 41 different country albums enter the top ten in the US charts, and has penned worldwide hits such as '9 to 5'and 'I Will Always Love You'.

The Ramones - of which the three founding members are now all dead - were one of the defining bands of the US punk movement in the 70s, and continue to inspire generations of musicians with their simplistic approach to songwriting, exemplified on tracks such as 'Sheena Is A Punk Rocker' and 'Blitzkrieg Bop'.

Stage and screen actress Julie - who also starred in 'The Sound of Music' - made her Broadway debut in 1954 and has a career which spans more than 60 years.

Other artists to be recognised with Lifetime Achievement Awards will be The Juilliard String Quartet, jazz drummer Roy Haynes, folk group The Kingston Trio and gospel singer George Beverly Shea.

Although the Lifetime Achievement trophies will be given out at a separate ceremony, a formal acknowledgment will be made during the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles the following day (13.02.11).
