‘This Day In Country Music’ – Dolly Parton [VIDEO]

On this day, June 13, 1973, Dollly Parton records ‘I Will Always Love You’ in a morning session in Nashville’s Studio B. Dolly wrote that song as a tribute to Porter Wagoner. Dolly was a co-host on the Porter Wagoner show from the late 60’s to the early 70’s. Together they recorded 12 albums and had several top 10 hits on the country charts.

Dolly Parton is one of the most revered songwriters in the business.  “I’ve always been a writer. My songs are the door to every dream I’ve ever had and every success I’ve ever achieved,” says Dolly Parton of her incredible career, which has spanned nearly five decades and is showing no signs of slowing down. ‘I will Always Love You’ hit No #1 for Dolly in 1974.

This song has reached  so many audiences over the years. Whitney Houston recorded the song for the movie ‘The Bodyguard’ in 1992 and introduced it to yet another audience. Whitney also took the song to No. #1 in the United States and around the world.

Watch Dolly’s ‘I Will Always Love You.’ From the original performance on the Porter Wagoner Show to her performance with Vince Gill in 1995 on the CMA Awards show and even Whitney Houston’s  performance.
