Watch Carrie Underwood Sing ‘I Will Always Love You’

If you’ve ever had any doubts about whether Carrie Underwood is one of the better country singers of our time, you’re in for a treat. Last week, the Country Music Association released Forever Country, a star-studded music video that features Underwood belting out a few verses of Dolly Parton’s I Will Always Love You. (Whitney Houston made the tune extra famous in her 1992 movie The Bodyguard, but Parton wrote the song back in 1973.) In a twist of pure music magic, Forever Country’s popularity inspired fans to recirculate a March video clip of Underwood singing those same gorgeous lyrics on The Bobby Bones Show, a radio program in Nashville. Her rendition is absolutely beautiful.

In the clip, Underwood is seen giving a live performance of I Will Always Love You in the Bobby Bones studio, accompanied by a talented guitarist. She adds passion to each note and makes listeners want to hang onto every lyric. Even if you’re not a big country fan, you just might finding yourself tearing a tiny bit at the emotion in her voice. Watch the video below and enjoy. (You’re welcome.)
