Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton share the secrets to their chemistry and their 30-year friendship in a new GAC special, Kenny & Dolly: An Intimate Conversation, set to air Monday, Dec. 9. at 9 p.m. ET.
The two chat about their instant rapport while recording their first song, “Islands In The Stream,” together three decades ago, and how their relationship has endured through 30 years of changes. Their new duet, “You Can’t Make Old Friends,” seems tailor-made for their friendship, and Parton says the song instantly struck a chord with her the first time she heard it. “When I heard the demo I cried because I thought so much about us and so much of many of my other dear friends.”
“To bring viewers a truly unique and remarkable chat between these amazing artists is incredible in and of itself,” said Suzanne Gordon, vice president of programming for Great American Country. “What makes this even more personal is that it isn’t moderated. You have these performers who transcend genre and category, who are larger-than-life figures in American pop culture, just sitting together and having a conversation. It’s really special.”
In a humorous moment during the taping, Parton reveals the secret to their long friendship and enduring relationship. ““It’s like with my husband; we’re not together that much so it works.”
