GRAMMY Award-winning country superstar and music icon Kenny Rogers has enjoyed great success during his storied career of five and a half decades. The enduring Country Music Hall of Fame member and pop superstar has endeared music lovers around the globe with his amazing songs, heartfelt performances, distinctive voice, gift for storytelling and universal appeal.
Rogers has played to millions of fans around the world, performing songs from his catalogue of 24 Number One hits, including “The Gambler”, “Islands In The Stream”, “She Believes In Me”, “Lucille”, “Coward Of The County”, “Lady”, “Through The Years”, “Daytime Friends”, “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town”, “You Decorated My Life”, “We’ve Got Tonight” and many more.
The first country artist to consistently sell out arenas, Rogers has played to millions of fans around the world and has charted a record within each of the last seven decades (’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, 2000’s, 2010’s). He has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, making him one of the Top Ten Best Selling Male Artists of All Time, according to the RIAA. Rogers has won many awards for his music and charity work, including three GRAMMY Awards, 19 American Music Awards, 11 People’s Choice Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards and six Country Music Association Awards, including the CMA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013.
Rogers’ music has always crossed boundaries — his 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary Top 10’s is sixth-best all-time, and fourth-best among men, trailing only Elton John, Neil Diamond and Elvis Presley.
Remaining a popular entertainer around the world, Rogers, voted the “Favourite Singer of All-Time” in a joint poll by readers of both USA Today and People, still loves touring and recording new music. “I really, really love what I’m doing,” Rogers says. “People survive longer if they love what they’re doing—because you just don’t quit.”
