Biography

American entertainer, the whiskered, whiskey-voiced king of country-western popular music. He made up to $300,000 per concert and earned as much as $2 million per month. A poor kid from a Houston housing project, he sang his way to a personal fortune that ranks as one of the largest in the Country-Western field. His album Share Your Love sold more than two million copies, and his first feature film was The Gambler (1980), then Six-Pack (1982).

Kenny Rogers was married five times (with each marriage lasting longer than the previous one) and had five children. In the fall of 1992 he was socked with lawsuits by three Texas women who alleged that he had coaxed them into playing kinky phone-sex games. He acknowledged that he had a private 800 number on which he recorded sexually explicit messages but said the women had called voluntarily and he never coerced anyone. The expose put a stress on his 15-year fourth marriage to Marianne Gordon. They separated and divorced in 1993, their son Cody was 11.

At 59, Rogers wed his fifth wife, Wanda Miller, 30, on his 1,200 acre farm near Athens, Georgia, on 1 June 1997. His best man was his 31-year-old son Kenny Jr, and 14-year-old Christopher Cody was an usher.

Five years later, at age 64, Kenny and Wanda announced that they were expecting their first children--twins. The 65-year-old singer and his wife, herself an identical twin, welcomed their identical twin boys on the morning of 6 July 2004 in Atlanta, Georgia. Justin Charles was born at 8:25 AM and Jordan Edward was born at 8:26 AM.

He admitted in a spring 2006 interview that he had undergone plastic surgery the previous year.

Rogers died at his home from natural causes on 20 March 2020 at age 81 in Colbert, Georgia.
