Kenny Rogers Celebrates Seven Decades of Chart-Topping

Kenny Rogers 2006

Legendary music icon Kenny Rogers’ latest single, “You Can’t Make Old Friends,” recently charted on the Billboard country chart at No. 57, giving Rogers a charted single in each of the past seven decades beginning in the 1950’s. Additionally, Rogers has also charted an album in each of the past six decades since the 1960’s. The track, which is off his Top 10 Country album You Can’t Make Old Friends (Warner Bros. Records), reunites the multiple Grammy Award-winner with long-time friend, Dolly Parton. While the album was just named one of iTunes’ Best Of 2013 Country Albums, Kenny & Dolly received their third joint Grammy nomination for “You Can’t Make Old Friends” for Best Country Duo/Group Performance.

A trailblazing recording artist, vocalist, and entertainer, Rogers has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide during his illustrious 56 years in show business. He was the first country artist to consistently sell out arenas and quickly became a pop superstar as well – his 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary Top 10’s is fourth-best all time among men, trailing only Elton John, Neil Diamond, and Elvis Presley. Rogers has recorded 12 No. 1 albums and 24 No. 1 hits – “The Gambler,” “Lady,” “Lucille,” “Coward Of The County,” and “Islands in the Stream” (with Dolly Parton) among them. His Greatest Hits album has sold over 24 million copies worldwide to date. He is the RIAA’s 8th best-selling male artist of all time with one Diamond album, 19 Platinum albums and 31 Gold albums.
