TOGETHER AGAIN ~ KENNY ROGERS AND DOTTIE WEST
"Together Again" is a 1964 song by United States country singer and guitarist Buck Owens.The song, best known as the "B" side to Owens' No. 1 hit, "My Heart Skips a Beat", interrupted that song's run at Number One on the U.S. country charts. Steel guitarist Tom Brumley's performance on "Together Again" is considered "one of the finest steel guitar solos in the history of country music" by the Country Music Television staff; it inspired Jerry Garcia to learn the instrument. In 1983, Kenny Rogers and Dottie West released a duet version of the song (it originally was recorded for their 1979 Classics album, but was released on Rogers' Duets album in 1983), that reached No. 19 on the Hot Country Singles chart.
