Country Stars: Where Are They Now?

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT SOME OF THEM ALREADY LIVE IN Retirement and Nursing Homes?

Music has the power to alter emotions. It can soothe anxiety and help turn it into joy. It can even prove beneficial when battling depression. For whatever purpose we listen to music, there is no doubt that its quality depends on the artist, and if the artist is able to produce good music, we remember him or her for the rest of our lives. We remember the lyrics to their songs, even if we heard them years ago. The following list aims to reacquaint you (or introduce you in case you are younger) to some of the most popular country musicians that dominated the country music scene from the ‘50s to the 2000s, although some of them continue to entertain us to this day. Youll be shocked to discover what some of them are up to now.

Kenny Rogers – Currently Performing on His Farewell Tour

Born in 1938 in Houston, Texas, Kenny Rogers has topped the music charts in various genres with about 120 of his singles and has sold more than 100 million of his records around the world. His albums The Gambler (released in 1978) and Kenny (released in 1979) both made it to the list published by About.com for the most influential albums in country music history. He gave us some of the best country songs, including his own all-time favorite The Gambler. Unfortunately, now that his hair is mostly, if not all, white (although with minimal hair loss), Kenny Rogers has decided to retire, and went on his farewell tour, calling it The Gambler’s Last Deal, an ode to his favorite song, around the world. He is still on this tour.
