Kenny Rogers – A “Natural” Talent
His face is as familiar as his voice. It has been said he can read over the lyrics of a song, then sing them like an old story. His music has crossed from Psychedelic Rock to Pop to Country, as his adaptable styles seem to be endless. He has been a session performer for Mickey Gilley and Eddie Arnold. He has over 120 hit singles, and numerous awards for his work. In 1966 he joined the New Christy Minstrels as a singer and double bass player. That association lasted a few years, but when Rogers wanted to go in another direction, he ended up leaving the group. Have a listen as Kenny remembers leaving the Minstrels and starting, “The First Edition”. KRogers
