Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers are old friends and duet partners, enjoying quite a unique relationship. But they've never gone "there."
Parton, 68, spoke to Closer about her unconventional relationship with her fellow country singer, saying,"Kenny is one of my favorite people in the whole wide world. Kenny and I have always had that love and that passion. Never been lovers, but always been in love and I think we really sing well together."
That's interesting – they never slept together, but are musically in love, it'd seem!
"I think there's a magic there. I'm so much better with her than I am without her," he said about their chemistry on their latest duet. "You know, it's a funny story. I was out at a rock 'n' roll show and a guy came backstage and said, 'Kenny, my name's Ryan King. I was with some friends the other day, and I realized that some of my greatest childhood memories are when I came to your farm and rode golf carts with your son, Chris. And I was telling them, you know what? You can't make old friends.' And I thought, 'Wow that is a song waiting to happen!'"
