Rogers also had over 20 acting roles(mostly TV movies) including playing Brady Hawkes in five Gambler movies which were based on his 1978 hit of the same name. In fact that LP was his first multi-platinum album for Kenny. “The Gambler” has, so far, gone 5X Platinum, Kenny from 1979 went 3X Platinum, 1983's Eyes That See In the Dark 2X Platinum. His Christmas LPs “Christmas” from 1981 2X Platinum and “Once Upon a Christmas” with Dolly Parton 2X Platinum. His best of Compilations “Ten Years of Gold” 4X Platinum, Greatest Hits 12X Platinum, 20 Greatest Hits 4X Platinum.

He was born Kenneth Ray Rogers on August 21, 1938. He was the fourth of eight children. In the 50's he had a minor hit called "That Crazy Feeling” but his first real success came as a member of First Edition which formed in 1967. They are best known for "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)" #5 on the Billboard charts, the #19 hit "But You Know I Love You" and "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town" which reached #6. Rogers left the first edition in 1976 and as much success as he had with the band the best was yet to come.

He had too many hits to name here but let's just say from 1976 to present Kenny Rogers has had 20 Top 40 Hits and 44 Country hits. Some of his Top 10s including his first big solo hit "Lucille" from 1977. It reached #5 so did "She Believes in Me" from 1979, "You Decorated My Life" reached #7 and "Coward of the County" #3 also in 1979.

The eighties were also very fruitful, "Don't Fall in Love with a Dreamer" (with Kim Carnes) was a #4 hit. Lady top the charts. In 1981 “I Don't Need You” peaked at #3. In 83 Rogers had two big duets, "We've Got Tonight" (with Sheena Easton) peaked at #6 and "Islands in the Stream" (with Dolly Parton) reached the top of the charts.

In September of 2015, Rogers told NBC's Today Show that he was retiring from music after one final tour to spend time with his family. - by John Beaudin
