Last night Kenny Rogers stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about his new album, You Can’t Make Old Friends. Interestingly enough, Jimmy Kimmel’s wife does vollunteer work in Kenya, and it turns out Kenyans LOVE Kenny Rogers. Especially the “The Gambler.” Take a look.
You can see the rest of the interview as well as Kenny performing “The Gambler,” “Just Dropped In,” and “Mercia” here.
You Can’t Make Old Friends hits stores on October 8th via Warner Bros. Records. Beginning this week, fans can stream the record for free a week early through October 7 on Amazon.com. The album reunites Rogers with long-time friend and collaborator, Dolly Parton, for a brand new duet on the title track, “You Can’t Make Old Friends.”
“What a thrill it was for me to work again with my buddy, Dolly Parton, and what a special song,” remarked Rogers. “Working with Dolly is always a little like going home. Everything felt comfortable.”
With a collaboration of producers, including Kyle Lehning, Warren Hartman, and Dann Huff, You Can’t Make Old Friends is Rogers’ first country album since the release of Water & Bridges in 2006. Rogers considers this upcoming release the most varied and complete album of his lifetime.
