Kenny Rogers’ TV Special Adds Tim McGraw, Darius Rucker
Kenny Rogers' upcoming TV special is adding a bit more star power to an already glittering lineup! Tim McGraw, Darius Rucker and Billy Currington join Smokey Robinson, Chris Isaak and Sheena Easton as the latest additions to 'Kenny Rogers: The First 50 Years.'
Previously announced as guests on the superstar's career retrospective: Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Alison Krauss, Wynonna Judd and the Oak Ridge Boys. In addition to performing Kenny's myriad hits, many of the artists will host segments of the show dedicated to the six decades of Kenny's career, which has included music, acting and photography.
"When this was first proposed to me as a 50-year celebration, something about that sounded final, and I didn't want that, so I suggested we call it 'The First 50 Years,'" says the 71-year-old. "I will tell you this, the first 50 years TV show is gonna be awesome -- the next 50 years TV show is gonna be a bitch."
'Kenny Rogers: The First 50 Years' will be recorded live on April 10 at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Ledyard, Conn., with Tim, Darius and Billy performing from remote locations.
