Country Superstar and contemporary music icon Kenny Rogers brings his band and a truckload of hits to the Union County Performing Arts Center, for one sensational night on Friday, March 8 at 8PM.
The multi-GRAMMY legend with universal appeal is one of music's most enduring and successful artists. Known for his instantly identifiable raspy vocals and an extraordinary ability to vividly inhabit each song he performs, Kenny has enjoyed a successful career spanning five and a half decades.
Against all odds, Kenny has charted a song in each of the last 7 decades (1950’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 2000’s, 2010’s) and is the first to chart hits in each of the last 6 decades. He has recorded more than 65 albums (20 Platinum), sold over 120 million albums, is included on the Top Ten list of Best Selling Male Artists of All Time and released classics such as:
The Gambler; Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town; Coward of the County; Islands In The Stream; She Believes in Me; We've Got Tonight; You Decorated My Life; Reuben James; Lady; Lucille; Through The Years; Buy Me A Rose; Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In); Daytime Friends; Real Love; I Can't Unlove You; The Greatest and more.
A triple GRAMMY winner, the Houston, Texas-born musician counts 18 American Music Awards, 8 Academy of Country Music Awards, 5 Country Music Association Awards and 11 People's Choice Awards, amongst his many accolades.
In addition, he has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Entertainment Buyers Association and is a recipient of the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award from the Academy of Country Music. He is also an established actor, author, photographer, producer, and record company executive.
Remaining a popular entertainer around the world, Kenny’s sincere ownership of great songs and enthusiasm for performing and touring has not diminished, and he continues to build on his legions of fans across the ages and genres. Voted the "Favorite Singer of All-Time" in a 1986 joint poll by readers of both USA Today and People, he still loves touring and recording new music.
