"Every Time Two Fools Collide" was meant to be recorded only by Dottie West, as a follow-up to her previous hits from 1977 under her new record company . Kenny Rogers was under the same label as West at the time, and they were both being produced under . According to legend, West was recording the song in the United Artists studio, when Rogers turned up early to meet West. However, this was disputed by Rogers. According to him, West was supposed to have finished recording material at 10:00 AM, and Rogers was to have started at the same time. When West's session ran over, Rogers ended up sitting in the studio waiting. They began talking about recording a duet, and West suggested "Every Time Two Fools Collide". They both agreed, and together West and Rogers made the song a duet recording. Another version of the event was told by producer Larry Butler in a 2006 interview. He claims that after Rogers had turned up to the studio it was West who approached Rogers saying she was a fan of his music and that she would consider it an honor to record with him someday. Butler then claimed that Rogers asked if he had any material he felt they could do together and told Rogers to sing the second verse of "Everytime Two Fools Collide".
