Since Whitney Houston’s death, Dolly Parton has seen an increase in her songwriting royalties for penning the track, “I Will Always Love You“.

Parton originally wrote the song in the 1970s and Houston’s remade it in 1992 where it topped the charts. The song again reached the top of the charts after Houston passed away in February because the fans again purchased the popular song.

Parton shared that she was distraught when she learned of Whitney Houston’s death. She has since revealed that she has received a substantial payout from this smash hit.

In an interview with Britain’s Daily Star Sunday, Parton said that her earnings increased tremendously since Whitney Houston’s death because there have been several Best Of albums including the song; and she shared that different artists have been recording the song.

Parton continued to say that the sales really increased since her death and she was grateful to God as well as to Whitney for giving such a powerful rendition of the song. She also added that the song pays for her hair, wigs and make-up.

Dolly Parton is worth approximately $400 million but she admits that she still needs to work to take care of her big family, because no one could ever actually make the kind of money that she spends.
