When asked about Kenny in interviews, Dolly has nothing but good things to say. For example, in a 2017 interview to CMT, the singer revealed that she felt like she and Rogers were soulmates:

Kenny’s friendship means more to me than our hit records. Actually, we’re kind of 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. I love his singing. I love his voice.
