Rogers is an iconic music figure who has been making music for over 50 years. He's had hits going all the way back to the '60s when he dropped psilocybin and sang the fuzzed out psychedelic song "Just Dropped In" with the First Edition. He followed that with a stream of monster smashes including "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town," "Lucille," "Love or Something Like It," "Lady," "Islands in the Stream" and, of course, "The Gambler."

He covers all of that as well as the ups and downs of his personal life--he's on his fifth marriage--and a heavy-drinking father. Additionally, there are chapters on his collaborations with Dolly Parton and how they first met; working with Lionel Richie in the early '80s, and expanding the boundaries of his country music to embrace black music; dissecting The Gambler television franchise; and honestly appraising his struggles with relationships.

Rogers has had a remarkable career and is only one of a few artists ever to sell 125 million albums. Incredibly, he's had hit singles in six consecutive decades. Don't believe it? Read his book and you will.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Steven Rosen, 2014
