Kenny Rogers added to his impressive list of achievements with a special honorary degree—but this time, not for his music. The recent Country Music Hall of Fame inductee received an honorary master of photography degree from Professional Photographers of America at its annual conference, Imaging USA, Jan. 14, at Symphony Hall in Phoenix.

Photography has been a passion of Kenny’s for several years and he’s set to release a book of his photographs, Places I’ve Been, Things I’ve Seen. “You start off doing something because you really love it, and it gives you great pleasure,” Kenny said upon receiving the honor. “With any luck at all, you get better. It was special to receive the highest honor that my photography has to offer. What a thrill!”

Kenny released the photography book Kenny Rogers’ America in 1986.
