Parton, meanwhile, shares what it was like writing the all-time classic song “I Will Always Love You”.

“Any dummy could have written that,” she says.

Talking about her donations to Nashville’s Vanderbilt Medical Center for COVID-19 vaccine research, Parton says, “I just wanted to do really good work, and I wanted it to make a really big difference in the world … to uplift mankind and glorify God.”
