Dolly Parton and Vince Gill’s “I Will Always Love You” Duet | What a blend of voices, gave me chills

“I Will Always Love You” is a classic country song originally written and performed by Dolly Parton. The song was released in 1974 as a single from Parton’s album “Jolene”. The song’s simple yet powerful melody and lyrics quickly made it a hit among country music fans.

In 1995, country music star Vince Gill joined Parton for a duet version of the song, which was included on Parton’s “Something Special” album. The collaboration between Parton and Gill brought a fresh perspective to the classic song and showcased the two artists’ incredible vocal talents.

The duet version of “I Will Always Love You” received critical acclaim and became a hit on the country music charts, reaching the top 15 in the United States. The song’s success also helped to introduce a new generation of fans to Parton’s music and cemented her status as a country music icon.

Over the years, “I Will Always Love You” has been covered by several artists, including Whitney Houston, whose version became a worldwide hit in 1992 after being featured in the film “The Bodyguard”. However, Parton’s original and the duet version with Gill remain fan favorites and a testament to the enduring power of country music.

In 2019, Parton and Gill reunited to perform “I Will Always Love You” at the Country Music Association Awards, reminding fans once again of the magic of their collaboration and the timeless beauty of the song.

Love them both. So much talent between the two of them in song writing, vocally, and guitar playing. They are national treasures!
