A dream duet has come true: Dolly Parton and Kristin Chenoweth perform Parton's "I Will Always Love You" on Chenoweth's upcoming album, For The Girls, which features a collection of covers with female greats ranging from Reba McEntire and Jennifer Hudson to Ariana Grande and Linda Ronstadt.

"These are some of my favorite singers in the world," Chenoweth told Entertainment Tonight, which debuted the song exclusively. "‘I Will Always Love You' is a song I've loved since I was a child. I used to think, ‘One day I'm going to sing that song.' Little did I know that I'd get to sing it with the queen herself."
