Kenny Rogers, who dominated the country music charts for most of the 1970s and 1980s with such hits as “The Gambler,” “Coward of the County,” and “She Believes in Me,” has teamed up with another country music icon, Dolly Parton, on his latest CD, “You Can’t Make Old Friends.”
Country Music Tattle Tale reported on Sept. 4 that Kenny Rogers will record the duet "You Can't Make Old Friends" with Dolly Parton. "You Can't Make Old Friends" will be the first duet the country music icons have recorded together since "Islands in the Stream" 30 years ago. There have been many country duets throughout the years, including Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty, George Jones and Tammy Wynette and Dolly Parton and Porter Waggoner. Rogers collaboration with Parton on “Islands in the Stream” remains one of the most successful duets in country music history.
Kenny Rogers will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame this fall and will also expand his “Through the Years World Tour“ to include more dates throughout the United States and Canada. Rogers tour has already taken him throughout the United Kingdom, including England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
