Kenny Rogers Opens Up About Aging

Country music star discusses memoir 'Luck or Something Like It' and the benefits of getting older

Turns out Kenny Rogers can tell a sharp story on the page, not just behind a mike. In Luck or Something Like It: A Memoir, the gravelly voiced country balladeer recalls singing everything from doo-wop to jazz to folk before finding success with "Ruby," "Lucille," "The Gambler" and other iconic tunes. Yes, he's recorded 65 albums and sold 190 million records, but Rogers has also excelled as an actor, photographer and restaurateur. At 74, the Houston native shares some of the philosophies that shaped his life.
