Today’s featured love song is by not one – but two – great women.

I Will Always Love You was written and recorded by Dolly Parton.

20 years later, Dolly was driving along one day when she heard Whitney Houston’s rendition of the song on the car radio.

Dolly nearly had a wreck. It was that shockingly grand.

 

Dolly had given permission for the song’s use in an upcoming film, but no one could’ve prepare her for what was to follow.

Even more than one show-stopping vocal recording, the song became just one of the lead tracks on the all-time top-selling motion picture soundtrack, The Bodyguard.
