Kenny Rogers releases YOU CAN'T MAKE OLD FRIENDS

7 October 2013 news


Legendary music icon Kenny Rogers returns with his brand new album YOU CAN’T MAKE OLD FRIENDS on October 8th via Warner Bros. Records. Fans can stream the record in advance of release through October 7th on Amazon.com. The 11 track 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, while the official music video was exclusively debuted on Good Morning America last month. 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. “I can honestly say this may be the best album I’ve ever recorded,” added Rogers. “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.” A trailblazing recording artist, vocalist and entertainer, Rogers has sold more than 120 million records worldwide and recorded more than 65 albums during his illustrious 56 years in show business. Rogers has charted a record within each of the last seven decades and scored a hit single in the past six. He was the first country artist to consistently sell out arenas and quickly became a pop superstar as well – his 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary Top 10’s is fourth-best all time among men, trailing only Elton John, Neil Diamond, and Elvis Presley. Rogers has recorded 12 No. 1 albums and 24 No. 1 hits – The Gambler, Lady, Lucille, Coward Of The County, She Believes in Me, Islands in the Stream (with Dolly Parton) and Every Time Two Fools Collide (with Dottie West) among them. His Greatest Hits album has sold over 24 million copies worldwide to date. He is the RIAA’s 8th best-selling male artist of all time with one Diamond album, 19 Platinum albums and 31 Gold albums. www.kennyrogers.musiccitynetworks.com
