In 2013, American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York made an unscheduled stop at Kansas City, Missouri.
The reason? A passenger refused to stop singing Whitney Houston’s ‘I will always love you’.

Dolly Parton wrote ‘I Will Always Love You’ on the same day as she wrote her famous ‘Joelene’ in 1972. She said “That was a good writing day”.
Dolly wrote the song, not about a romantic break up, but about parting ways with her long time producer, mentor and duet partner Porter Wagoner.
