You Can’t Make Old Friends  (Warner Bros. Records)
by  Kenny Rogers

FOR FANS OF: Randy Travis, the Oak Ridge Boys, Dolly Parton
Rating: 5 Stars

Seven decades into his career, Kenny Rogers is still singing his heart out and sounding spectacular, especially as he returns to his roots on this first new country collection since 2006. In addition to several storytelling songs revolving around good oldfashioned, but always applicable, family values, “The Gambler” reunites with Dolly Parton on the sureto- be-classic ballad, “You Can’t Make Old Friends.”
