Water & Bridges is the twenty-sixth studio album by American country music singer Kenny Rogers. It was released on March 21, 2006 via Capitol Records Nashville. The album accounted for three singles: "I Can't Unlove You," "The Last Ten Years (Superman)" and "Calling Me," all of which charted on Hot Country Songs. These songs respectively reached peaks of 17, 56 and 53.[1]

Thom Jurek of Allmusic rated the album three stars out of five, saying that it "isn't a perfect record, but it's a sincere one."[2]

"Someone Somewhere Tonight" was later covered by Pam Tillis and Kellie Pickler, the latter of which release the song as a single to country radio in May 2013. "Half a Man" was originally recorded by Anthony Smith on his album If That Ain't Country, and his version charted at number 40 on Hot Country Songs in 2003.
