Kenny Rogers performs in concert at Silver Star

By Staff
Special to The Star
May 10, 2002
Grammy-winning country music star Kenny Rogers brings his country-pop sound to the Silver Star Hotel &Casino in an 8 p.m. Saturday concert at the Silver Star Conference Center.
In a span of nearly three decades, Rogers has recorded 59 albums that have sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
In March 1999, the Recording Industry Association of America awarded Kenny the prestigious Diamond Award celebrating sales of more than 10 million albums for his "Greatest Hits" album.
Also in 1999, Rogers returned to the top of the charts with back-to-back hit singles, "The Greatest," and his 22nd No. 1 hit, "Buy Me A Rose." Both songs captured the No. 1 slot on Country Music Television's Top 12 Video Countdown and propelled Rogers' "She Rides Wild Horses" album to platinum status.
His new single, "Harder Cards," debuted at No. 53 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart.
As one of country music's biggest crossover successes, Rogers' numerous accolades include four Grammy Awards, 11 People's Choice Awards, 18 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards and five Country Music Association Awards.
In addition, he was named "Favorite Singer of All Time" in a PM Magazine/USA Today poll in 1986. And in 1989, readers of People Magazine voted Rogers "Favorite Male Vocalist."
In 1990, Rogers was honored with the Horatio Alger Award, given to those who have distinguished themselves despite humble beginnings.
Rogers spends a great deal of his time recording and performing, but he has also enjoyed a fulfilling career as an actor and is best known worldwide for his colorful portrayal as Brady Hawkes from "The Gambler."
All tickets to Rogers' concert are non-refundable.
Tickets are $37.50; they may be purchased at the Silver Star box office by calling (800) 557-0711. You must be 21 years or older to attend. The Silver Star Conference Center is a non-smoking site.
The Silver Star Hotel &Casino is a development of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.
