"Fuel to the Flame" is a song written by Dolly Parton and her uncle, Bill Owens. It was recorded and released as a single in 1967 by American country artist, Skeeter Davis.
The song helped to establish Dolly Parton as a major star in American country music. Along with the success of another song she co-wrote, "Put It Off Until Tomorrow", Parton was able to sign a recording contract with Monument Records as a music artist.
"Fuel to the Flame" was recorded at the RCA Victor Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, United States on June 15, 1966, nearly a year before its release. The session was produced by Felton Jarvis. This was one of the first sessions Jarvis would produce by Skeeter Davis. The song was released as a single the following year in January 1966. "Fuel to the Flame" became Davis' first major hit in two years, reaching a peak of number eleven on the Billboard MagazineHot Country Singles chart. The song was later issued onto Davis' studio album, What Does It Take (To Keep a Man Like You Satisfied). Parton recorded a version of the song herself and included it on her debut album Hello, I'm Dolly.
