Stay Current with the Pick of the Day: Kenny Rogers

kenny rogers

Houston-born icon Kenny Rogers began his career in the ’50s, loaning his talents to rockabilly, jazz, and folk outfits before forming The First Edition, a band that arrived on the scene in 1968 with the psychedelic hit “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In).” Since proving himself as a solo artist with the 1977 classic “Lucille,” Rogers has sold upwards of 120 million records worldwide and topped the charts with 24 hits including “The Gambler,” “Lady,” and “Islands in the Stream.” This year brought the publication of his memoir Luck or Something Like It and a well-received performance at Bonnaroo, where SPIN confirmed the 73-year-old country legend “fit in beautifully with the festival’s tie-dyed demographic.” Featuring special guest Billy Dean, Rogers’ Christmas & Hits Tour makes its only Texas stop at the Majestic. $45-$80; 7:30pm Mon, Dec 10; The Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston, (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
