It’s true!  The set list included "Three Times A Lady," "She Believes In Me," "Lady" and "The Gambler". Check out the video.

Here are 5 things about Kenny Rogers that you might not have known.

  • He was born August 21, 1938 in Houston, Texas. (He’s older than he looks!)
  • Rogers grew up poor, living with his parents and six siblings in a federal housing project.
  • Rogers starred in several television movies inspired by his songs, including 1980's The Gambler, which spawned several sequels, and 1981's Coward of the County. On the big screen, he played a race car driver in the comedy Six Pack.
  • Rogers went through a dramatic change in his personal life in 2004. He and his fifth wife, Wanda, welcomed twin boys Jordan and Justin in July—just a month before his 66th birthday.
  • He admits to having plastic surgery to make himself look more youthful, but he was unhappy with the results of how his eyes turned out.
