"Perhaps the most striking part about this ballad is Parton's interaction with her singing partner, 14-year-old singer Willa Amai. Amai opens the song, her voice bold and yearning and struck with the slightest tremble. Then Parton enters, effortless yet dazzling, and it's a passing of the torch." - Refinery29
" ...the ballad reimagining of "Here You Come Again" with 14-year-old Willa Amai feels truly exceptional. With only a few singles to her name, the teenage newcomer is given the honor of opening the song, and she doesn't disappoint. It's one of the few moments that an accompanying voice is able to keep up with Parton's." - Esquire
