Kenny Rogers: Through the Years 

Sunday, June 8

Turns out, The Gambler really does know when to hold and when to fold 'em: In February, 76-year-old Kenny Rogers canceled a handful of performances--including a show at the Morrison Center--due to illness. After nearly 60 years of writing and performing (and co-founding Kenny Rogers Roasters, which closed U.S. operations and filed for bankruptcy but now thrives in Malaysia and the Philippines), the Academy Award-winning, Country Music Hall of Fame-inducted, chart-topping silver-haired icon is entitled to some time off.

Forty years ago, Rogers was a master of genre-crossing, lending his deep, Texas-born country tone to pop tunes with ease. Recently honored with the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award at the 74th Country Music Awards, Rogers is on the road with his Through the Years Tour, which includes a rescheduled stop in Boise on Sunday, June 8.
