On Tonight’s edition of TheREWIND starting at 7:00pm ET we wil pay tribute to one of music’s most beloved artist,country/pop music icon KENNY ROGERS who sadly passed away today at the age of 81. His 50+ year career started in 1966 when he joined the folk music band New Christy Minstrels. He and a few members of that group left the Minstrels to form The First Edition a mainly rock band who had several hit songs in the late 60’s. Later,in the early 1970’s the group would start to add a country flavor to their musical repertorie. The band broke up in late 1975 and Kenny became a music superstar! Combining country,pop, adult contemporary and even R&B music to his music arsenal made Kenny one of the biggest selling artists of all time,selling well over 100 million records worldwide! Kenny is a multi Country Music Awards,Grammy and American Music Award winner as well as an 2013 inductee into The Country Music Hall Of Fame. We’ll play most of his hits as well as spotlight the artists that worked with him throughout his long career.
