Preview: You Can't Make Old Friends - Kenny Rogers

Artist: Kenny Rogers
Title: You Can't Make Old Friends
Release Date: October 8, 2013
Label: Reprise
Format(s): CD, DD

Kenny Rogers, who will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame this fall, will release his first country album in seven years, You Can't Make Old Friends, on October 8.

The album marks his third go around with Reprise after recording for them in the late-60's and early-70's with the First Edition and again in the late-80's as a solo artist.

Opening the album is the title song, a new duet with Dolly Parton. Rogers said "What a thrill it was for me to work again with my buddy, Dolly Parton, and what a special song. Working with Dolly is always a little like going home. Everything felt comfortable."

Rogers is very excited about the new release. "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."
