In 1967, as a member of The First Edition, Rogers cranked out some great records including Reuben James, Ruby (Don't Take Your Love to Town) written by Mel Tillis, Just Dropped in to See What Condition My Condition Was In and Something's Burning. Great songs, all, but my favorite out that bunch is Reuben James.
Rogers also released smash hits as duets with partners including Dolly Parton, Islands in the Stream, Sheena Easton, with the Bob Seger classic, We've Got Tonight, and several hits with the late Dottie West, What Are We Doin' in Love. Click on any of those links and explore the music of Kenny Rogers. I had forgotten just many smash hits and awards the man had to his name. It seems almost impossible to be that successful.
Here's a list of Kenny's songs that are my personal favorites along with Reuben James that I previously mentioned.
- The Greatest - this one brings back a flood of memories from my childhood. It also reminds me of my Dad.
- The Gambler - one of the biggest Country hits ever, later made into a movie or two. Another one my Dad liked a lot.
- Lucille - who doesn't know this song? Gotta include it.
- Morning Desire - the title says it all. I really like this one.
