Kenny Rogers Receives Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award at CMAs [Video]
Rogers sat on stage while the performers played a number of his most famous hits, including ‘Just Dropped In’ and ‘The Gambler,’ before joining them for ‘Islands in the Stream.’ The star-studded crowd stood and sang along throughout the performance.
After the tribute, Nettles presented Rogers with the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award, which began last year.
“It’s been a hell of a month. Hall of Fame last week and this this week,” Rogers said, in reference to his recent induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
