Kenny Rogers returns with a new album, You Can't Make Old Friends , on October 8.  The diverse project includes a duet with Dolly Parton on the title track.  Of course, Rogers and Parton scored a massive hit 30 years ago with another collaborative tune, "Islands in the Stream."

Kenny says, "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."

The rest of Rogers' new album includes forays into soul, Southern rock, zydeco and gospel.

"It goes from songs I would normally sing, to songs I would normally never even listen to," Kenny admits.  "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."

Rogers also has a new novel titled What Are the Chances that's now in stores, which he co-wrote with Mike Blakely .  In addition, look for Kenny's new autobiography, Luck or Something Like It , to come out in paperback on September 27.

Here's the You Can't Make Old Friends track listing:

"You Can't Make Old Friends" (with Dolly Parton)
