A revered inductee of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Parton is a prolific composer whose timeless numbers have sprung to life in their own right. Parton's "I Will Always Love You" topped the music charts twice, with its second incarnation performed by Whitney Houston in 1992, whereas her haunting "Jolene" has achieved virtual immortality through countless renditions by artists such as Jack White and Miley Cyrus.
