The duet “I Will Always Love You” by Dolly Parton and Vince Gill is without a doubt one of the finest in country music. Although it has a new and enlivening twang, it nevertheless sounds like the traditional country music that we are all used to hearing. And you’re absolutely missing out if you haven’t listened to this yet.
For many people, “I Will Always Love You” has always belonged to Whitney Houston. You would often hear her high note screaming of the lyrics at singing contests and even at karaoke. It’s really a Dolly Parton song, however! When Dolly made the decision to quit Porter Wagoner’s TV program and embark on a new chapter in her career, she sent this letter to her duet partner and mentor.
Vince opens the song, and wow audiences. His tone gently caresses the ears with his voice. His lovely tenor and silky falsetto, which could make you experience eargasms, are what make his singing so excellent. Dolly would then enter for the second section, letting the audience experience every nuance of the song’s emotions via her distinctive tone. And she more than makes up for her “lack” of high-belting notes with excellent control of her runs. The music sounds flawless and smooth with Vince fitting in.
Even though Dolly’s solo performance is already wonderful, the duet with Vince gives the song a much-needed change of pace. Their voices blend so nicely together that Vince’s gentle falsetto and tenor are like sugar to Dolly’s distinctive voice as pure as water.
