Dolly Parton Tears It Up with Kenny Rogers In This Vintage Performance

Advertisements

The 1980s might seem like a pretty long time ago to some people. Fortunately, for many classic country music lovers, it can be so easy to travel back in time -- thanks to fans that share fantastic vintage videos like this!

Dolly Parton’s famous duet with Kenny Rogers, 1983’s “Islands In the Stream,” is practically the perfect love song.  Back in its heyday, the song went platinum within weeks of its release; even today it boasts over half a million digital copies sold.  

And we bet that you’d never guess who wrote it: The Bee Gees! They originally wrote “Islands in the Stream” as an R&B song to be performed by Marvin Gaye.  

Somehow, it made its way to Kenny Rogers… And the rest is history.

This emotional performance perfectly showcases all of the glamour and drama that made this ballad so popular “back in the day.”  Dolly and Kenny’s musical chemistry was so profound that we’re still blown away by it three decades later!
