Kenny Rogers will release a new album called You Can't Make Old Friends this fall. The project reunites Kenny with long-time friend and collaborator, Dolly Parton, for a brand new duet on the title track, "You Can't Make Old Friends." It was 30 years ago almost to the day when Kenny and Dolly released "Islands In The Stream," which went on to become one of the most successful singles by a duo in history.
Kenny worked with several producers, including including Dann Huff, Kyle Lehning, and Warren Hartman.
Kenny said, "I can honestly say this may be the best album I've ever recorded. The musical diversity is extraordinary. It goes from songs I would normally sing, to songs I would normally never even listen to. In this business, you do albums to both grow artistically, and for the sheer love of music. We chose what I think are the most diverse and best songs I've ever had access to."
You Can't Make Old Friends is Kenny's first country album since the release of Water & Bridges in 2006.
You Can't Make Old Friends will be released on October 8th.
Fans who pre-order the new album on iTunes will also receive an instant download of the "You Can't Make Old Friends" duet.
