A special exhibit titled “Kenny Rogers: Through the Years” opened today at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. To celebrate the opening, Rogers himself will appear in conversation at the museum tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. in the CMA Theater.
The exhibit will cover Rogers’ lengthy, legendary career, from costumes from the Gambler TV show to his many awards, including the CMA Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award.
“Kenny Rogers redefined and elevated country music superstardom in every sense,” Museum Director Kyle Young said in a press release. “He blurred traditional genre lines and substantially expanded the core demographics of country music’s audience, all by being true to his unique artistic vision. His versatility is astounding. We could not be more thrilled to share this detailed presentation of his story.”
Other festivities include a Songwriter Session with Don Schlitz, who wrote “The Gambler.” Tomorrow’s event is free for museum members or with price of admission for non-members. The event will also be streamed live at countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming.
