Dolly Parton revealed that she invested her royalties from Whitney Houston’s cover of “I Will Always Love You” into a Black community in Nashville. The Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and actress wrote and performed the song in 1973 as a farewell to her then business partner, Porter Wagoner. However, it wasn’t until Houston covered it for the 1992 romantic drama “The Bodyguard” that it became a worldwide hit. The ballad — which spent 14 weeks at the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 — earned Parton $10 million in royalties in the 1990s, according to Forbes. “I bought my big office complex down in Nashville,” the 75-year-old country icon explained. “I thought this is a wonderful place to be.”⁠

  1. I love Dolly Parton and she does great things. But is this post telling us that her big contribution to this black community in Nashville was by…. gentrifying it? 🤔

  2. A fine lady. I really wish Brainless Britney and the Kardashians would learn from her classy example.

  3. At what stage is CNN going to tell us what some real news like crime, border, inflation and how badly Biden is doing.
