Dolly Parton is one of the most popular country music icons and actress ever known in history. Her powerful voice and unique song-writing skills have established her as a presence in both country and pop music across the globe. Talking of her song, “I Will Always Love You,” her inspiration came as a result of her professional breakup with her mentor, producer, and duet partner, Porter Wagoner. Therefore, this is not a romantic song the way many people perceive it. According to Parton, she had always dreamt of working as a solo artist for years, and in 1967, she decided to make her dream come true. However, her duet partner Wagoner didn’t like the ideas as he wished they would continue working together. Hence, the best way Parton would make Wagoner understand her was through the song. That is how the hit song came by, and people loved it although they never understood the real story behind it.
