Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton Reunite For ‘You Can’t Make Old Friends’
Kenny Rogers is reuniting with an old friend for a new song. He’s teaming up with Dolly Parton for ‘You Can’t Make Old Friends,’ the title track of his latest album. Rogers calls the single a ‘special song,’ and says ‘working with Dolly is always a little like going home. Everything felt comfortable.’
Kenny & Dolly released ‘Islands in the Stream‘ 30 years ago and the song went on to become one of the most successful duets in history.
‘You Can’t Make Old Friends’ is out October 8th and is what Kenny says ‘may be the best album I’ve ever recorded.’ Take a listen to part of the new song and judge for yourself.
