1996- George Strait is at No. 1 with ‘Blue Clear Sky.’

1974- Dolly Parton goes to No. 1 with the original version of ‘I Will Always Love You.’ Dolly takes the song to No. 1 again in 1981 with an updated version of the song for “The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas” movie. After Whitney Houston records a pop version, Dolly cuts the song again for a Top 15 duet with Vince Gill in 1995.
