Country Music Hall Of Fame And Museum To Host 'Panel Discussion: Kenny Rogers And The First Edition'
January 13, 2015 at 8:45 AM (PT)
The COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM will host "PANEL DISCUSSION: KENNY ROGERS AND THE FIRST EDITION" on SATURDAY (1/17) at 2p (CT) in the CMA THEATER.
During the late 1960s and early 1970s, ROGERS made hit recordings, appeared on TV shows, and undertook successful tours as a member of THE FIRST EDITION. In the process, ROGERS laid the groundwork for his later solo stardom. In this free-ranging conversation, THE FIRST EDITION members KENNY ROGERS, MIKE SETTLE, TERRY WILLIAMS, MARY MILLER, and GENE LORENZO will discuss the group’s career, which included hits such as “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)”; “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town”; SETTLE’s original song “But You Know I Love You”; and “Ruben James.”
The panel will be presented in support of the exhibit "KENNY ROGERS: THROUGH THE YEARS" and included with MUSEUM admission. It will also be streamed live. For more information, visit www.countrymusichalloffame.org.
