The first thought of Kenny Rogers these days may revolve his ill advised plastic surgery but there was a time when Kenny Rogers was the undisputed king of Country Pop and his crossover appeal was off the charts. Ironically, this could work against him in terms of the Rock and Roll Hall, as he was not Rock enough for the Hall nor was he Country enough to have the same respect that the Outlaw musicians had. Still, there would be much more bizarre Country based choices than “the Gambler”.

If other country stars ranked HIGHER than Kenny Rogers on this website (Patsy Cline, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings to name a few) and they certainly DO NOT have as much crossover appeal as Kenny Rogers, Kenny should be a shoe in over the other prementioned artists.
