Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers Reunite to Record “You Can’t Make Old Friends” (VIDEO)
He is 75. She is 67.
Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, arguably two of the most popular artists of any music genre, have teamed up after a long absence of decades. Kenny and Dolly, old friends and hit makers, have recorded the poignant and sweet "You Can't Make Old Friends" which is a cut off Kenny's newest CD. He has sold 165-million records.
Dolly Parton has composed more than 3,000 songs and is one of country music's most revered stars. She and Kenny have teamed up several times in their careers, most notably on "Islands in the Stream" which rocked the music world in 1983 with their mega-million selling performance. They have also dueted successfully on several Christmas albums.
For those of us who love music, especially country music, this new release, both song and video, marks a sentimental return of sorts. Take a look at the two old pros doing what they do best. Sure they are older, and perhaps don't look like we remember them (who does?), but you cannot deny real star power when you see it.
Kenny and Dolly.."The Cowgirl and the Gambler" if you will. Its good to have you back!
