Letting Vince Gill sing this typically female-associated song, like Dolly Parton’s, was a truly inspired choice

The song “I Will Always Love You” by Dolly Parton has been covered by numerous artists, with Whitney Houston’s version notably propelling it into modern pop culture fame. Legendary country singer Vince Gill also made his mark on this classic track. Gill has performed the song multiple times, including a notable rendition with Dolly Parton. One of his most memorable performances was at the Ryman Auditorium, a historic venue in Nashville, known as the birthplace of country music. This performance of Vince Gill’s highlights his connection to the song.

It is speculated that “I Will Always Love You” might be one of Vince Gill’s favorite songs, given his frequent performances of it. The song itself has a rich history; Dolly Parton originally wrote it as a farewell to her former duet partner, Porter Wagoner, signaling her move towards a solo career. Vince Gill’s renditions are known for effectively capturing the song’s emotional depth.

The Ryman Auditorium, where Gill performed the song, holds significant historical value. Before the Grand Ole Opry moved to its current location, the Ryman Auditorium was its original home. A brief video of Vince Gill’s performance was posted on the Ryman’s official website, serving as a tribute to Dolly Parton.

Although the video is just a teaser and not the full performance, it promises an impressive rendition. Fans of Vince Gill’s music were encouraged to look out for the full video release on July 28, 2019.
