Kenny Rogers is responsible for some of the most iconic moments in pop-country history - and you'll hear a bunch of them Friday when he performs in the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods,
Yes, he'll trot out "Lucille," "Islands in the Stream," "Lady" and "The Gambler." But Rogers is acutely aware of the season; in fact, he's out on the "Christmas & Hits" tour, so expect to hear some holiday fare.
In fact, Rogers has released a whole slew of Santa-happy albums including "Christmas," "Once Upon a Christmas," "Christmas in America," "The Gift," "Christmas from the Heart," "Christmas with Kenny" and "Christmas Collection."
For the record, these releases collectively include three different versions of "Winter Wonderland," three different versions of "A Christmas to Remember" (I don't know it, either), four versions of "White Christmas," and two versions each of "Silent Night," "Once Upon a Christmas" and something called "Sweet Little Jesus Boy."
