Country music fans lost a legend on March 20, 2020, when singer-songwriter Kenny Rogers died at age 81. Fans and celebrities alike paid tribute to the icon, including the Texas native's longtime friend and collaborator, Dolly Parton. Parton wrote on Instagram,
"You never know how much you love somebody until they're gone. I've had so many wonderful years and wonderful times with my friend Kenny, but above all the music and the success I loved him as a wonderful man and a true friend."
Fellow country star Reba McEntire commented on her post, quote, "Dolly, he sure loved you."
Not only did Rogers and Parton share a lot of love, they also worked together on various projects. From the duo's 1985 concert film, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton: Together, to their hits like "Islands in the Stream," they were an unstoppable force. In fact, the two were so in sync that relationship rumors dogged them for years.
Some might assume this topic was uncomfortable for Rogers' five ex-wives, some of whom spoke out after the country crooner's passing. This includes Marianne Gordon, Rogers' fourth wife and mother to his son, Christopher Cody Rogers.
Marianne Gordon, an actor, was married to Kenny Rogers from 1977 to 1993. During this time, Gordon got to know the country legend on a deep level, especially where it concerned his close friendship with Dolly Parton. When asked by Closer Weekly about the romance rumors on March 24, shortly after Rogers' death, she replied,
"I never felt uncomfortable at all. I just knew him so well. But, it's funny that you say that. We had a tennis pro who traveled with us, Doug Dean asked me too. I told him Kenny said I like her as a friend and we have a great thing on stage. We'd lose it. There is sexual tension and teasing each other and it would screw it up."
Although Gordon is pretty sure nothing happened between the collaborators, she doesn't rule it out. She added,
"Dolly might have [made a move though]. It's entered my mind because she always said she thought like a man. I don't mean it badly. Dolly is a fun girl."
For those who might not believe Marianne Gordon's account of Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers' relationship, they should probably take note of a 2013 interview the two did with ABC News. When asked directly whether they were an item at one point, the "Jolene" singer replied,
"It never crossed our minds because he was with people. I've been married, forty, I've been with my husband 48 years."
Rogers joked,
"I think that chemistry and that connection comes from an unrequited love, if you will, because we never consummated anything."
At the end of the day, the pair's story begins and ends with friendship. Parton told CMT's Cody Alan in 2017,
"Kenny's friendship means more to me than our hit records. Actually, we're kind of like soul mates. He's from Texas and I'm from Tennessee. There's an old famous country song, 'T for Texas, T for Tennessee.' We always sing that to each other."
She added,
"I love his singing. I love his voice. I never tire of hearing him sing. And I think our voices blend great, so I'm really proud of the musical part of that as well."
Of course, it's completely reasonable to have a platonic soulmate. And we think this perfectly explains why Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers never dated.

Seal 6 Well actually, the terms have become a bit blurred in recent years. “Actor”. Has been used to describe both males and females, sort of a generic term, technically incorrect but being used frequently. I suspect the term, actress will soon become obsolete.

It’s sad that a true friendship between opposite sexes or anyone has to be explained or “debunked” These two legends were great friends and it made their performances together even greater and more memorable!

Dolly has always been openly promiscuous, her husband has known throughout their marriage, she’s had affairs with many of her film co-stars and musicians she collaborated with. If she had an affair with Kenny I’m pretty sure we would have heard something, I just think she found a really good friend in Kenny and he found the same.

I don't doubt that Dolly was a bit flirty with Kenny (even behind the cameras,) BUT I also think she was respectful of Kenny and his marriage, and I don't really see Dolly as the type to run off with some man whom she sang a few songs with and give up a 40+ year marriage. They were artists. They were an exceptional duo. They may have shared a friendly kiss here and there, but they both knew they had other things going on in their lives to be caught up in a scandal.
Inquisitive Southern Woman
Back in the early 90s Dolly admitted to having lots of affairs with many men in the industry. She was on MTV at some event and was backed up on Billy Ray Cyrus rubbing her body all over his. She told the interviewer her husband knew what she did and didn't care as long as she came home to her husband.

I worked as a caterer in Anchorage Alaska and catered Kenny's July '83 concert there. While fulfilling his personal requests for food etc. in his room back stage his wife Mary Ann came in to check that things were as he requested. Photos do not do her justice, she's absolutely stunning, and a very nice person. In approval of my efforts to please Mr. Rogers she said that when I came back to remove the hot trays etc. after their departure that I should look above a certain kitchen cabinet. When I did, there was an 8X10 autographed photo of Kenny and a $100 bill.
