There are so many memorable duets that have graced the world of country music, but there is one in particular that will always steal the hearts of anyone who listens. That is, of course, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton's timeless hit, "Islands In The Stream". There is a reason it topped the list of CMT's 100 Greatest Duets. It's just that good.
"Islands In The Stream" was actually written by the Gibb brothers of the Bee Gees. Released in 1983, it was the the first single released from Kenny Rogers' Eyes That See In The Dark album. The romantic duet was a gigantic hit across the world. It charted not just in the U.S., but also worldwide, and became a pop crossover hit. It peaked at #1 eight different times.
The passionate song describes just how much these two people love each other, describing their relationship as islands in the stream. They can't live without each other's tender love. Swoon.
When Kenny and Dolly perform "Islands In The Stream", it's like the rest of the world fades away around them, and all that is left is the embodiment of love that the two country legends represent. They just look like they're have so much fun, enjoying each other's company, as they perform a song that will forever be engrained into our memories.
Throw it back to 2005 when they first topped the list of CMT's 100 Greatest Duets and get ready to hit play multiple times, because that's how good this is - an exciting, high-energy performance for the books.
