Lady Antebellum’s ‘islands in the stream’ singing will lift your spirit
Country Music Group joined together Wednesday evening performance and a cover of the late Kenny Rogers hit duet with Dolly Parton, “Islands in the stream.”
it was part of CMT’s “Giants Kenny Rogers: a benefit for MusiCares,” which raised money for the Covid-19 relief.
despite not being able to be in a place, they sounded great.
“when I think of Kenny Rogers, what song comes to mind? ‘Islands in the stream,’ is one that is a special one,” co-lead singer Hillary Scott said . “That was the first song that we sang together and then we ended up doing it live, God probably a hundred times at this point. Then ‘islands in the stream’ to make sure the first one is, is the song that I thinking about, and then, if there was one it would have to be ‘the greatest,’ that may be my favorite Kenny Rogers song.”
Rogers, whose legendary musical career spanned six decades, died on March 20 at the age of 81 of natural causes, according to his family.
