Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton were longtime collaborators and friends for decades, but they never dated, and in an interview, explained why not.

"I'm a believer that tension is better if you keep it than if you satisfy it," Rogers joked during an interview on the Today show. "And then secondly, she said no to me."

"I'm not his type," Parton retorted before sharing that the real reason the two never got together was that he felt more like family to her than a romantic partner. "Nah. You know what, we were almost like brother and sister.. So we just never went there."

So they never dated, but that sounds like love to me.
