Kenny and Dolly's Final Duo - 09/25/13
Tonight Kenny Rogers took the stage at The Ryman. He is such a nice man. I've had the honor of sitting down one-on-one with him on two separate occasions. The most recent time we chatted was just a couple weeks ago when he told me all abou this new album out October 8th. One song on there is his 2nd and final duet with the great Dolly Parton.

The first time I interviewed Kenny was around the same time when Facebook was having this "look a like week". Where you posted a picture of your doppelganger as your profile. To be honest, my entire life I have been told I could be Jenny McCarthy's twin. BUT Kenny Rogers had another one for me!! CLICK HERE to see the behind the scenes video I took of him telling me who he thinks I looked like!
Speaking of Kenny. One of my most fond memories of his music is from college. My college roomate Summer and her friend used to do a hilarious impression of Kenny and Dolly singing "Islands in the Stream". I am pretty sure I have pictures of this, but don't worry Sums, I'll never show them! Well except for maybe a #ThrowbackThursday - just kidding!!
I have always loved a wide variety of music and it's no secret that Dolly Parton has always been one of my favorites - well maybe not ALWAYS. I don't remember how old I was, but I can remember my grandfather having a picture of Dolly that someone brought to him. I remember him talking about how gorgeous she was and I remember that not thrilling my granny very much. I was little and I remember NOT liking Dolly AT ALL. Haha.
I was actually able to share that story with Dolly one of the last times I interviewed her. In that same interview Dolly was kind enough to give me some marriage advice when she found out I was only days away from getting married to my sweet husband Doug.
