A&E Biography: Kenny Rogers now available on demand
Biography: Kenny Rogers is a journey through Kenny’s life and chart-busting career. Weaving in performances from his star-studded farewell show in Nashville, the biography charts Kenny’s hard-won 60-year career. In this captivating two-hour documentary, Kenny’s friends, family, and fellow artists tell the story of how Kenny Rogers rose from adversity- battled obscurity – and a pop culture superstar.
From impoverished beginnings to the meteoric rise and crash of The First Edition, to his soul-tested struggle for relevancy. It all culminated in Kenny digging deep, finding his ‘ace, and going all-in — transforming into The Gambler, becoming a country music icon, a duet-crooning pop star and a 21 #1 hit machine.
But perhaps Kenny’s greatest pop culture legacy is his pas de deux with Dolly Parton. Beginning with their chart-topping Islands In The Stream, and continuing through the years with their torrid stage performances. In the documentary, Kenny and Dolly open up about their enduring partnership, deep friendship and musical ‘love affair’ – leading their legions of fans to wonder, “Was there something more”?
We end the documentary as it begins – in Nashville – with one final Kenny and Dolly performance – and a ‘mic drop’ sendoff for the ages.
