You’ve got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, and you’ve got to know when to show ’em, too. And that’s what the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will do when it opens the cameo exhibition Kenny Rogers: Through the Years on Aug. 15.

“Kenny Rogers redefined and elevated country music superstardom in every sense. 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,” says museum director Kyle Young. “His versatility is astounding. We could not be more thrilled to share this detailed presentation of his story.”

Kenny has sold more than 100 million records globally and scored 21 No. 1 singles on the Billboard chart. He has three Grammys on his mantel, along with six CMAs and eight ACMs, and he became a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame just last year.

In addition to his numerous country music kudos, he’s also an accomplished actor, photographer and a generous humanitarian.
