Originally from the “wrong” side of Houston, Kenny Rogers was the first in his family to graduate from high school. As a teenager, he sang in a doo-wop group, The Scholars, and from there joined the New Christy Minstrels in the mid 1960s, Kenny and other group members later splintered off to form The First Edition. Their first big hit, “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town”, propelled Kenny’s gravelly tones to center stage, and they soon became Kenny Rogers and the First Edition, until they disbanded in the 1970s.
From there, Kenny went solo. He began chalking up a string of country-tinged ‘top 20′ pop hits with “Lucille”, “Don’t Fall in Love With a Dreamer”, “Through the Years”, “We’ve Got Tonight”, and his two #1 hit sellers “Islands in the Stream” (with Dolly Parton) and “Lady”. By the late 1970s, he had sold over $100 million worth of records.
Rogers was named the “Favorite Singer of All Time” in a 1986 PM Magazine/USA Today poll. In 1989, People magazine readers voted him their “Favorite Male Vocalist”, and he has also been awarded the Recording Industry Association of America’s prestigious Diamond Award, celebrating sales of more than 10 million albums for his “Greatest Hits” album.
The Good Sam Rally is proud to present… Kenny Rogers, Friday, November 2, 2012!
