Dolly Parton - I Will Always Love You Here's a lil background...not only did Dolly write this, but Elvis wanted to buy it from her...and Dolly thought long and hard...thinkin what a great job Elvis could do with it...but being another fellow Mad Cap (she & Elvis both Capricorn Control Freaks)...she kept it and was happy in the end.
Not only a country music and crossover success, Dolly Parton is a generous spirit. Her most notable philanthropy, her literacy program, "Dolly Parton's Imagination Library," mails one book per month to each enrolled child from the time of their birth until they enter kindergarten. It has now been replicated in 566 counties across 36 U.S. states (as well as in Canada). In December 2007 it expanded to Europe. The program distributes more than 2.5 million free books to children annually.
