Throughout his career, Kenny Rogers recorded 65 albums and sold more than 165 million records. In the 1950s, he debuted as a soloist, before joining several groups, including First Edition. In 1976, he once again went solo and began to amass a series of pop-country hits. His numerous duets with artists like Sheena Easton, Bob Seger, and Lionel Richie further cemented his power as a crossover artist and hitmaker. He also lent his voice to the iconic “We Are The World” collaboration.
