Wow, who knew?

I have always been a fan of Kenny Rogers, musically. I never knew he was such an accomplished photographer as well. It's almost a shame that one talent completely overshadowed a second.

Thanks for bringing this to light.

I've always been a fan of his photography as well as his music, so I'm glad to hear this news which I might have missed without your post. I have a calendar of his pictures in my kitchen.

A long long time ago (the 60's!!) when I was in college I had the connections and opportunity to meet and spend time with all the music performers who came through the university, and of all of the famous music folk I met during those years, Kenny Rogers stands out as the nicest, most enjoyable to get to know. He was genuine, and his photography strikes me as the same.
