Country music legend Kenny Rogers was on hand for the opening of the biographical exhibit “KENNY ROGERS: THROUGH THE YEARS” at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The exhibit runs until June of next year.
Rogers’ signature clothes from “The Gambler” movies — including his topcoat and hat — and hundreds of other mementos from the singer’s career are part of the new Kenny Rogers: Through the Years exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The exhibit opens today and runs through June 14, 2015, in the museum’s East Gallery.
Rogers, who will turn 76 on Aug. 21, is recovering from knee replacement surgery. Two weeks ago, he limped through the museum to sneak a peek at his exhibit, which was still being installed. With twin 10-year-old boys at home and on the heels of a busy 2013 that included critically acclaimed new album “You Can’t Make Old Friends,” significant headlining performances, an all-star tribute at the CMA Awards and induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Rogers acknowledged he is feeling his age.
