Multiple Television Appearances Lined Up For Release Week

September 26, 2012 – Grammy Award-winning music legend Kenny Rogers will embark on a busy fall season with the release of his autobiography, LUCK OR SOMETHING LIKE IT, on October 2nd, 2012.

For more than half a century, Rogers has been a fixture

music around the world.  Now for the first time, this entertainment icon
details his fascinating lifelong journey and incredible rise to fame
with his memoir, LUCK OR SOMETHING LIKE IT (William Morrow; Hardcover; $27.99)
Exploring the struggles of his long road, his story begins simply: 
growing up in Depression-era Texas, living in the projects, surviving in
poverty, and listening to his mother, who always had just the right
piece of wisdom.  Rogers recounts his early years and
musical career, sharing stories about the friendships that have meant
the most to him, from Dottie West to Lionel Richie to Dolly Parton, and
how through it all, he continues to make music with the passion that has
defined him from the start.

During release week, Rogers will appear on Good Morning America, The View, The Colbert Report, CBS This Morning, Piers Morgan Tonight, Anderson Live, Fox News, Canada AM and others, in addition to NPR’s Morning Edition, The Diane Rehm Show, The Leonard Lopate Show, SiriusXM and numerous syndicated radio interviews.  Rogers will
also appear on a seven-city book tour beginning on October 2nd.  Full
details are listed below on where he’ll be appearing and meeting his
fans in person.

Kenny Rogers, a beloved, universally known icon of
American entertainment, has thrived as a groundbreaking recording artist
and consummate showman for more than half a century with his unique
storytelling ability and soulful voice.  He has recorded more than 65
