No. 14: Dolly Parton, ‘I Will Always Love You’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs

Dolly Parton

If you haven’t heard Dolly Parton‘s smash ‘I Will Always Love You,’ chances are you’re living underneath a rock … and have been for decades. Parton took the tune to the top of the charts in 1974. She wrote it a year earlier while she was going through her very public professional breakup with the legendary Porter Wagoner. The song was the second single from her thirteenth studio album, ‘Jolene,’ and is easily considered to be a career song for Parton, which is just one of many reasons why it had to be included on the Top 100 Country Love Songs list.

‘I Will Always Love You’ was recorded once again in 1992 by Whitney Houston. Soon after, the tune became one of the best-selling singles of all time by a female artist.
