"I Will Always Love You" is a song written by American singer-songwriter Dolly Parton. The country track was released on 6 June 1974 as the second single from Parton's thirteenth solo studio album, Jolene (1974). Recorded on 13 June 1973, the singer wrote the song for her one-time partner and mentor Porter Wagoner, from whom she was professionally splitting at the time. "I Will Always Love You" received positive comments from critics and attained commercial success, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart two times. With the accomplishment, Parton became the first artist ever to earn a number one record twice with the same song as a singer, and three times as a writer.
