It's not that I dislike the Collective Soul version. The two versions are very different, and depending on my mood, I can actually prefer to listen to either one of them. At the end of the day, though, I have to give the prize to Dolly for hearing the bluegrass version buried inside the rock version and teasing it out. That takes big talent. Go Dolly.

The great Ed Roland of Collective Soul wrote this song...get your facts straight. There is no comparison between the two versions of this song...what a farse!!

Dolly Parton did not write this song, Ed Roland of Collective Soul wrote this song. It's a crime that the two songs are even compared!!!

Dolly Parton wrote the song. She didn't take a bluesgrass version from it, it is her song. She is a talented songwriter who has written many song, sung and made famous by other people, such as "I will always love you".

Collective Soul is an awesome band, and to have one of their best known songs ripped apart by her is shameful

you are a complete and total loser for even creating a contest. I am sorry for you.

It's JUST SO WRONG!!! Why doesn't Willy Nelson do Guns & Roses "Welcome to the Jungle" next. I love country music and I love rock and roll and I think it's great when one artist or song can cross over to more than one genre, but having a country artist re-do a rock song... it's just SO VERY WRONG... on so many levels!!
