because the story goes, Dolly Parton wrote "Jolene" and "I Will constantly Love You" both on the same day. That's the sort of music trivia that makes the rounds on Twitter every few months 1) because it's fascinating, and 2) as the song itself contains multitudes and sounds like it must've been labored over for longer than an afternoon.
