Tenth Annual Artist-In-Residence
Kenny Rogers parlayed a husky voice and laid-back manner into an enduring career that lifted the Texan to stardom across decades and musical genres. In the early 1960s, Rogers played bass in a Houston jazz combo, the Bobby Doyle Trio, before joining a popular, Los Angeles-based folk-pop group, the New Christy Minstrels. In 1967, he formed the First Edition, whose pop hits included “Just Dropped In (to See What Condition My Condition Was In)” and “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town.” He launched his durable solo career with the 1977 crossover hit “Lucille,” followed in 1978 by an even bigger hit, “The Gambler.” He has garnered twenty-one #1s and more than 50 million in album sales while achieving Top Ten hits from the 1960s to the 2000s. He also has enjoyed success as an actor and photographer.
