Kelly Clarkson’s Incredible Cover Of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You!” Here’s The Performance!

Bravo Kelly Clarkson!

This incredible Singer / Songwriter wow’ed the crowd at the Academy of Country Music Awards last night, singing Dolly Parton’s iconic song “I Will Always Love You!”

As Vulture reported:

It was the moment we’d been waiting for — and the ACMs made us wait. After over 100 minutes of show, we finally got that promised Kelly Clarkson tribute to Parton, and if you had any doubt? She delivered. Clarkson took on the mother of all covers, “I Will Always Love You,” written by Parton before it was popularized by Whitney Houston. She sang a simple, true rendition of the song, showing off her signature belt without ever overdoing it. “I was backstage trying not to cry my false eyelashes off and slinging snot every direction and tears,” a bashful Parton said after. Her and the rest of us.

Here is the video:

  1. Hi John, Kelly did a great job with this song. I though it was a Whitney Houston song, maybe she sang a cover version.

  5. Nicely done. I love Dolly and Kelly’s version. Still can’t help but feel Whitney “owns” this song.
    My son mentioned he’s got tickets to see Coldplay in Atlanta this year. I assume you will be seeing them?


  6. She did a great job, John. So many people here only associate that song with Whitney, but I actually prefer Dolly’s original.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Kelly sang Dolly’s version, and just to reiterate, it wasn’t Kelly’s choice: she tends to avoid any song that is so identifiable with a certain iconic singer…she is VERY respectful to the Artists she covers…she was asked to perform this by the show since they had a tribute to Dolly…

      • Oh yes, I got that, John. It is just in the UK that the song is so associated with Whitney, when I told my step-daughter it was originally a DP song, she roared with laughter and didn’t believe me. 🙂

      • No one does! that’s why Kelly avoids iconic performances and never tries to replicate them…but she was asked to do air and of course did for Dolly – anything for Dolly! Kelly did her first christmas album because she LOVED Dolly’s “Hard Candy Christmas” song so much!
