Kenny Rogers Spanning Generations at Bonnaroo

Kenny Rogers

One of the best things about Bonnaroo Music festival is the variance in the acts that you can witness over the course of one weekend. You can go from the jam bands and the electronica to more classical country acts such as the likes of Kenny Rogers, who played early evening in the “Other Tent” on Sunday, June 10th. Regardless of whether or not you are a fan of country/western music, you have to give it up for a superstar like Kenny Rogers, who has been in the musical spotlight for almost fifty years. Over the course of an hour and 15 minutes, he crooned out all of his hits from the course of his career. This
show drew an audience that you don’t see at most music festivals today. It was an interesting blend of older ladies and gentlemen wearing their cowboy hats as a tribute to this music legend and typical drunk music festival goers. What was even more astonishing took place later that evening during the
headlining act of the weekend: Phish. Kenny Rogers got on stage with the mega jam band to play Rogers’s song, “The Gambler”. Lionel Richie came out to perform with Kenny Rogers during his day set.

Over the course of Rogers’ long and established career he has won almost every award you can
think of from Grammys to CMT Music Awards to The American Eagle Award. He has collaborated with
icons such as Dolly Parton, Sheena Easton, and Hank Williams Jr. To say that his voice has captured the
hearts of tens of millions of people around the world is merely an understatement of his impact on
music today. Kenny Rogers is currently on a tour that will take him all across the United States and even
through Europe.
