Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” is paid homage by the phenomenally talented Kelly Clarkson at the Academy of Country Music Awards, and the performance is nothing short of breathtaking. Dolly Parton was the one who came up with the original melody and recording for this smash single back in 1973.
Whitney Houston’s rendition of the lovely ballad, which she recorded in 1992 and released, shot straight to the top of the Billboard charts and breathed fresh life into the song.
The song “I Will Always Love You” is considered a timeless classic on account of its infectious melody and the sincere words that it contains.
Dolly Parton has been an indispensible figure in the music business for many years. She established a reputation for herself as an upbeat personality who is not shy about expressing her opinions. She is responsible for several legendary classics, including “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You.”
At the 2022 Academy of Country Music Awards, Kelly Clarkson pays tribute to the iconic performer by performing “I Will Always Love You.” You are going to get the goosebumps after hearing this really beautiful performance, that much is certain.
Positive reactions to the performance were heard from a significant majority of audience members.
One observer noted, “She maintained the tenderness of Dolly Parton’s rendition, while also including the strength of Whitney Houston’s rendition, and she did all of this while making Kelly Parton’s performance her own. Just gorgeous.”
