On March 9, 1985, Dolly released her 27th solo album, "Real Love," on the RCA Nashville label. It was Dolly’s last recording on that label after an 18-year relationship. The album featured four original songs including the title track, a duet with Kenny Rogers.
The duet reunited Kenny and Dolly after their success with "Islands in the Stream."
"Real Love" reached number nine on the Billboard Top Country Albums list and had two No. 1 country singles ("Real Love" and "Think About Love"). "Real Love" earned Dolly two GRAMMY nominations, one for Best Female Country Vocal Performance and another for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group (with Kenny Rogers).
