Kenny rogers guitar chords

In the late 1950s, he started his recording career with jazz-singer Bobby Doyle, and joined the folk ensemble The New Christy Minstrels in 1961, playing double bass and bass guitar as well as singing. In 1967, he and several members of The New Christy Minstrels left to found the group The First Edition, with whom he scored his first major hit, “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)”, a psychedelic rock song which peaked at number five on the Billboard charts. As Rogers took an increased leadership role in The First Edition, and following the success of 1969’s “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town”, the band gradually changed styles to a more country feel. The band broke up in 1975-1976, and Kenny Rogers embarked on a long and successful solo career, which included several successful collaborations, including duets with singers Dolly Parton and Sheena Easton, and a songwriting partnership with Lionel Richie.
