    What gets lost in all this is what the song was about: The breakup and dissolution from her mentor Porter Wagoner.

    Dolly Parton > Whitney Houston. But that should be obvious.

    Whitney's voice is one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard and this song became a classic because of her, but Dolly also did a great job singing with more passion and feeling, although she doesn't have such powerful voice like Whitney's
