This Spine-Tingling “Islands In The Stream” Cover Will Leave You Breathless

Roger Goodgroves

Taking center stage, this talented duo dropped jaws with their unforgettable performance of this treasured Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton duet!

UK country music duo, The Shires, have become quite the popular act across the pond and grown a massive fan base – one that even reaches all the way into the U.S.

Performing for an excitable crowd during a show at The Thekla concert house in Bristol, England, The Shires pulled out all the stops with one of the most impressive covers of “Islands In The Steam” we’ve ever heard. 

Unlike the normally pop-infused tune that was made popular by Parton and Rogers back in 1983, this pair slow it down quite a bit and use the extra time to really blend their voices on special notes, adding delightful flourishes and riffs that will definitely give you chills! 

This remarkably talented duo is so popular as rising stars on the country music scene in both the U.K. and the U.S. that the Country Music Association awarded them the 2017 Jeff Wlaker Global Artist award for their incredible talent and contribution! 

Get ready to be blown away by these stunning musicians as they take on one of the biggest country music hits ever!
