In 1974 Dolly Parton was approached by Colonel Tom Parker, manager of The King himself, Elvis Presley. Parker explained to Parton that Elvis wanted to record a cover of her hit single “I Will Always Love You”, the one caveat being that they would then get 50% of all the publishing rights to the song. In a show of resilience that must have been hard for Parton, she turned down the deal. This moment of strength has been immortalised in this song by Mark Nevin, and accompanying stop-motion music video by Heather Colbert in which we see Parton being chased and intimidated by Parker, before literally throwing the contract back in his face.
