CRB, Inc. Honors Kenny Rogers with Career Achievement Award
The award, established in 1998, is presented to a deserving artist who has been a major influence on the growth and success of Country Radio.
Dale Carter, Chair of The Country Music D J and Radio Hall of Fame Committee said, "Last year Kenny Rogers participated in the Country Radio Seminar's 'Life of a Legend' panel. It's great to have him back with us again this year during Country Radio Week to accept the Country Radio Broadcaster’s Career Achievement."
In a career that has spanned nearly six decades, Kenny Rogers has amassed 20 Platinum album certifications, scored 22 number one hits and sold 105 million albums worldwide. His singles including "The Gambler," "Lady," "Islands in the Stream" and "Coward of the County" are some of Country Music fans' most beloved songs of all time. Roger’s music has withstood the test of time and today he has certainly earned the right to be called one of Country Music’s most influential artists.
CRB, Inc. previously announced that Larry Daniels, Bob Moody, and Les Acree will be inducted into the Country Music Radio Hall of Fame. Joe Ladd and Big John Trimble will be inducted into the Country Music DJ Hall of Fame.
