The legendary Kenny Rogers has enjoyed a 55-year-career as a Grammy Award-winning recording artist, distinctive vocalist, and consummate entertainer. Amazingly, Rogers has charted a record within each of the last seven decades and scored a hit single in the past six. Not many artists, if any at all, can lay claim to those extraordinary chart accomplishments. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame during a special Medallion Ceremony in Nashville on October 27th. Rogers recently finished recording a new album, You Can't Make Old Friends, which was released by Warner Bros. Records on October 8th to critical acclaim.
Known for instantly identifiable sweetly raspy vocals and an extraordinary ability to vividly inhabit each song he performs, Rogers has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide and recorded more than 65 albums during his storied 52 years in show business. His long list of timeless classics includes an impressive 24 #1 hits - "The Gambler," "Lady," "Lucille," "She Believes in Me," "Islands in the Stream" (with Dolly Parton), "Coward Of The County," and "We've Got Tonight" among them. His Greatest Hits album has sold over 24 million copies worldwide. He is the RIAA's 8th best selling male artist of all time with 1 Diamond album, 19 Platinum albums and 31 Gold albums.
Rogers has received hundreds of awards for his music and charity work, including three Grammys, 11 People's Choice Awards, 18 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music awards and five Country Music Association awards. It was announced on October 28th that Rogers will receive the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award at the 47th Annual CMA Awards on November 6th (the show will be televised on the ABC Television Network). Remaining a popular entertainer around the world, Rogers, voted the "Favorite Singer of All-Time" in a 1986 joint poll by readers of both USA Today and People, still loves touring and recording new music.
