Kylie Minogue Just Covered Dolly Parton’s “Islands In The Stream” In Concert And It’s Everything

And we rely on each other....

If you needed confirmation Kylie Minogue is going full-tilt country, here it is: The Aussie pop diva hosted an exclusive concert to promote her new album, Golden, and did a scintillating cover of Kenny Rogers’ and Dolly Parton’s 1983 hit “Islands in the Stream.”

The song was originally written by the Bee Gees for Marvin Gaye in the 1970s, but Rogers gave it a honky-tonk spin with Dolly on his album Eyes That See in the Dark.

60 Minutes Australia also filmed Minogue performing Golden’s first single, “Dancing,” as well as the album’s title track—the first time the song has been heart publicly.


Golden hits stores on April 6.
