Biography

Kenneth Donald Rogers (born August 21, 1938, in Houston, Texas) is a prolific American country music singer, photographer, producer, songwriter, actor and businessman. Kenny Rogers graduated from Jefferson Davis High School in Houston.

Although he has been very successful, charting more than 60 top 40 hit singles across various music genres and topping the country and pop album charts for more than 100 individual weeks in the United States alone, many still consider him a vastly underrated artist. To his fans, he is extraordinarily popular; women in concert audiences bring him roses in unrelenting waves throughout a performance. He appeals to all age groups and still sells millions of albums.

Both his albums “The Gambler” and “Kenny” are featured in the About.com poll of “The 200 Most Influential Country Albums Ever”.[1] He has also been voted the “Favorite Singer of All-Time”, in a 1986 joint poll by readers of both USA Today and People.

He has received hundreds of awards for both his music and charity work. These include AMA’s Grammy’s, ACM’s and CMA’s, as well as a lifetime achievement award for a career spanning six decades in 2003

Most recently, Rogers hit with his new album release, “Water & Bridges”, an across the board hit, that peaked at #5 in the Billboard Country Albums sales charts, also charting high in the Billboard 200. The first single from the album, “I Can’t Unlove You,” is also a hit. He is currently planning a tour of the United Kingdom, in a 2006 BBC Radio 2 interview he told DJ Steve Wright, his favorite hit of his was The Gambler.

    @anothlastfmuser You will note there that I wrote the rebuttal voted most helpful. We like our community on Last.fm; we like that it's not a police state. This shoutbox would be a better place if there were a bunch of Kenny Rogers fans chatting here about random things and making references to his music.
