Something Special is the thirty-third solo studio album by Dolly Parton. It was released on August 22, 1995, by Columbia Records. In addition to the seven new Parton compositions, she updated three classics from her repertoire: "Jolene", "The Seeker", and "I Will Always Love You", the latter of which was performed as a duet with Vince Gill. The Gill duet, Parton's third recording of the song, reached #15 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, becoming Parton's highest charting single in four years. Additionally, it was named "Vocal Event of the Year" by the Country Music Association.[1]
