Rogers has enjoyed great success during his storied career of five
and a half decades. The enduring Country Music Hall of Fame member and
pop superstar has endeared music lovers around the globe with his
amazing songs, heartfelt performances, distinctive voice, gift for
storytelling and universal appeal.

Rogers has played to millions of fans around the world, performing

In The Stream,” “She Believes In Me,” “Lucille,” “Coward Of The County,”
“Lady,” “Through The Years,” “Daytime Friends,” “Ruby, Don’t Take Your
Love To Town,” “You Decorated My Life,” “We’ve Got Tonight,” and many
more.

The first country artist to consistently sell out arenas, Rogers has
played to millions of fans around the world and has charted a record
within each of the last seven decades (’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s,
2000’s, 2010’s).  He has recorded 24 Number One hits and sold more than
