After Whitney Houston's recording of the song became a hit in 1992, the tabloid press began reporting on a 'feud' between the two performers, stemming from Dolly Parton allegedly reneging on an agreement that she would not perform the song for a number of months while Houston's version was on the charts, so as not to compete with Houston's recording. However, both Parton and Houston dispelled any rumors speaking glowingly of one another in interviews. [23] [24] Houston praised Parton for writing a beautiful song.

Around this time, Parton branched out in a new direction. She opened her own theme park called Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, in 1986. The amusement park remains a popular travel destination to this day.

As early as 1995, a slightly remixed version of the song began appearing on Parton's hits compilations, sometimes faded to its original length and sometimes extended to 3:00. In this remixed version, some guitar is louder while background vocals are lower or missing in some places, and in the 3:00 version some of the horns as heard in the film version of the song can be heard towards the end of the track. The 3:00 version of the song is available on " The Essential Dolly Parton " and " Playlist: The Very Best of Dolly Parton " among others.

Or, as she puts it to a honky tonk beat in Country is as Country Does on her new album, Better Day: "'Cause I'm quite content with who I am/And if you ain't, well, kiss my ham."

Inspired by her father’s inability to read or write, Dolly created her Imagination Library, a book gifting program designed to foster a love of reading in children. The program which began in Sevier County Tennessee has now mailed more than 78 million free books to children.
