Dolly Parton And Kenny Rogers Reunite For “You Can’t Make Old Friends”

Forget about Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears joining forces on Bangerz — the best duet of 2013 is already here! Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers celebrate the 30th anniversary of pop classic “Islands In The Stream” by reuniting for nostalgic ballad “You Can’t Make Old Friends”.

Happily, it’s a heartstring-pulling triumph. The country legends have recorded a love song in the truest sense. This is a simple, honest and heartfelt ode to loyalty and friendship. The shamelessly sentimental video clip is equally touching. Dolly and Kenny introduce the song — discussing their mutual respect for one another — before performing the gorgeous ballad on an empty stage.

Make sure you keep watching after the clip finishes. The delightful duo continue their pre-song conversation, declaring that they will be best friends forever. You might need a tissue handy. Watch below.
