March 30, 2012 at 6:11 AM (PT)
Country great KENNY ROGERS will perform at the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM in NASHVILLE on WEDNESDAY, MAY 9th at 7p (CT) in the FORD THEATER as the HALL’s 2012 ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE. He will also perform on THURSDAY, MAY 10th at 7p (CT).
Established in 2003, the residency program annually honors an artist or musician who can be credited with contributing a large and significant body of work to AMERICAN popular music. Previous honorees include COWBOY JACK CLEMENT, EARL SCRUGGS, TOM T. HALL, GUY CLARK, KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, JERRY DOUGLAS, VINCE GILL, BUDDY MILLER and CONNIE SMITH.
“KENNY ROGERS is the consummate entertainer,” said Museum Director KYLE YOUNG. “As a member of a band or duo or as a solo artist, he has conquered the jazz, folk, pop and country worlds—not to mention his success as an actor and photographer. KENNY has the gift of telling stories and making you believe he lived them. We are thrilled that he will help us celebrate the 10th anniversary of our ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE program by bringing his stories and songs to the FORD THEATER for two unique shows.”
