Kenny Rogers to get Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award


Rogers will receive The Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award, with a tribute featuring performances by Jennifer Nettles, Rascal Flatts and Darius Rucker.

"Kenny Rogers is a living legend and Country Music trailblazer," said Ed Hardy, president of the CMA Board of Directors. "He is more than deserving of this honor and what is sure to be a stellar tribute. He represents everything that this Award was intended to recognize when we initiated it last year with Willie."

Rogers, a five-time CMA Awards winner, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame Sunday night. Rogers has sold more than 120 million records worldwide, recorded 24 No. 1 songs and 12 No. 1 albums.

The 47th Annual CMA Awards will air Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC7.
