Orville Peck celebrated the one year anniversary of his debut album Pony with a livestreamed concert from isolation last night (March 23), and he included a tribute to the late Kenny Rogers.
About 40 minutes into the set, he performed "Islands in the Stream," originally a duet by Rogers and Dolly Parton.
He encouraged viewers to sing along at home to fill in the void of a second voice.
After the livestreamed concert, Peck also announced that he will release a new single called "Summertime" on April 1. He's played the song live over the last year, but the studio version will finally land next week.

Watch the Rogers tribute below. It starts around the 39-minute mark.
Rogers died Friday (March 20) at the age of 81.
