Kenny Rogers Will Celebrate His 50 Years in Music With TV Special
Kenny Rogers and a throng of his show business friends will tape a television special celebrating his 50 years in music April 10 at the Foxwoods Resort Casino's MGM Grand Theater in Mashantucket, Conn. Already confirmed to perform are Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, the Oak Ridge Boys, Alison Krauss and Wynonna. Rogers and his management company made the announcement Thursday (Feb. 4) at Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center shortly before his performance with the Nashville Symphony. The Oak Ridge Boys were there for the announcement, as were singer Linda Davis and her husband, Lang Scott. Davis and Scott were in a particularly festive mood since their daughter Hillary Scott's group, Lady Antebellum, currently has America's bestselling album, Need You Now. Tickets to the Kenny Rogers: The First 50 Years taping go on sale Feb. 11. It has not been announced yet which network will broadcast the special.
