Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton reunite on new duet
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Three decades after their unforgettable team up on “Islands in the Stream,” Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton have a new duet out on Rogers’ latest album.
The title song from “You Can’t Make Old Friends” shows once again the special chemistry he and Parton have. But Rogers says it stops there.
“Working with Dolly is a great rush for me because we are good friends and we have been forever,” Rogers said. “People always thought we were having an affair and we didn’t want to ruin it because if we’d had an affair, we’d lose that spark. We just flirted a lot.”
Not even one stolen kiss?
“I can’t explain it but flirting is more electric than passion, it’s the anticipation,” Rogers said. “She does it better than anybody I’ve ever seen, and it’s just fun. It’s fun to be in the room with her.”
