Tonight (November 6), Kenny Rogers will be receiving the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award on the 47th Annual CMA Awards!

Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker and Jennifer Nettles will be performing a nearly 10-minute tribute to Kenny, showcasing some of his masterpiece classics.

I grew up listening to Kenny Rogers and am very happy to see he is getting this well-deserved recognition tonight. I did some investigating on Kenny’s stats through the years (pun intended).
