In today’s fast paced music world, it is nearly unheard of for an artist above the age of 50 to have a major record deal and still have hits on the radio.  It’s even more rare that an artist at the age of 73 would be signed to a new major record label deal.  However, it’s no surprise that the one person who’s able to do this is the great Kenny Rogers.

Kenny Rogers has already made history by becoming the oldest person to ever have a solo No. 1 hit on the Billboard Country Charts. In 2000, at the age of 61, Rogers broke through the ‘young country’ dominated airwaves with  ‘Buy Me A Rose.’ Do you think he can do it again?

It seems that Warner Bros. Records has faith in the Iconic Entertainer, as they have announced they will join forces once again to create sweet music together. Rogers made the revelation Wednesday night, May 9, during his first of two sold-out performances at the Ford Theater in Nashville as the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s 2012 Artist-in-Residence.

Rogers, whose catalog on Warner Bros./Reprise Records includes a string of multi-platinum albums and career hits recorded over the span of several decades, returns to where it all began in 1967 when his career was ignited with his mega-hit with the First Edition, “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In).” Rogers’ new album is being produced by award-winning producer, Dann Huff, and is scheduled for release later this year.

In a press release, Rogers stated: “I’m looking forward to returning home to Warner Bros. Records after all these years. Our history together, combined with the incredible team that’s in place now, provides the catalyst for a great new relationship going forward.”
