By now, Kenny Rogers has become such an icon that it’s easy to forget how he got there. Having recorded more than 65 albums which have sold over 105 million records worldwide Rogers is an American Icon who is in the same league as The Beatles, Elton John and Elvis Presley.
Rogers has won three Grammy awards, 11 People’s Choice Awards, 18 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music awards and five Country Music Association awards and he still loves touring, and recording new music.
Just look at the titles: ‘Lady,’ ‘Ruby Don’t Take Your Love to Town,’ ‘The Gambler,’ ‘She Believes in Me,’ ‘Islands in the Stream,’ ‘We’ve Got Tonight,’ ‘Buy Me A Rose.’ Not a ditty among them. Then listen. The sweetly raspy vocals are instantly identifiable as Kenny Rogers – he sounds like nobody else. More importantly, he inhabits each song, making it vivid and tangible. For five decades, Rogers has delivered memorable songs, drawing fans among rock, pop, soul and country audiences.
When one singer makes such an indelible mark, that’s not mere luck or even simple talent ‘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.’
