CMT’S ARTISTS OF THE YEAR
HISTORY CHANNEL’S “CHRISTMAS THROUGH THE DECADES"
THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON
New Christmas Album - Once Again It’s Christmas Out Now
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (December 2, 2015) – It’s almost Christmas and Kenny Rogers is very active all over national television.
On Wednesday, December 2, Kenny Rogers will attend CMT’s “Artists Of The Year” special where he will be presented with the prestigious Artist of a Lifetime award presented by Ram Trucks. The live broadcast from Nashville will air nationwide on CMT at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
On the same evening on the History Channel, Rogers will travel back to the 1970s to recount cultural elements of Christmas that came about during that decade for HISTORY’s “Christmas Through The Decades” series. The show airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
“Christmas Through The Decades” goes back in time to explore what Christmas was like not too long ago. Special guests Jillian Michaels, LeAnn Rimes, Dascha Polanco and more will reveal how classic holiday films, fads, television specials, songs and toys created lasting impressions that are still felt during 21st century Christmas celebrations. Beginning with the 1960s and concluding with the 1990s, HISTORY travels through the past and reminisces about the most wonderful time of the year.
And finally on Monday, December 14, Rogers will perform a song from his first new Christmas studio album in seventeen years titled Once Again It’s Christmas (Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville) on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” airing at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT.
An exclusive edition of Once Again It’s Christmas is available now at Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores with an exclusive bonus track featuring The Time Jumpers (including Vince Gill) — “(I Love The) Winter Weather.”
Kenny Rogers is currently in the middle of his 34th Annual Christmas & Hits tour, Once Again It’s Christmas featuring Linda Davis. He recently announced on TODAY that his upcoming worldwide tour will be his last.
Rogers has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide. He has charted a record within each of the last seven decades. The first country artist to consistently sell out arenas, Rogers quickly became a pop superstar as well — his 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary Top 10's rank him fourth-best of all time among men, trailing only Elton John, Neil Diamond, and Elvis Presley. Rogers has recorded 24 No. 1 hits, 12 No. 1 albums, 25 Top 10 country albums and is the RIAA’s eighth best-selling male solo artist of all time. He has received three GRAMMY® Awards, 11 People's Choice Awards, 19 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards and six Country Music Association (CMA) Awards.
