Info From Music Row with Leuck and Howe 09/15/2021


In case you missed it...

Back in 2017, an all-star lineup of country music’s biggest names paid tribute to Kenny Rogers at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Well, now fans who weren’t at the gig are finally going to get to see some of what went down. CBS will air “Kenny Rogers: All In for the Gambler” on September 23rdat 9 pm. Shot more than two years before Kenny’s March 20, 2020, the concert features performances by Dolly Parton, Chris Stapleton, Lionel Richie, Reba McEntire, Little Big Town, Lady A, and Idina Menzel, although some of the performances from the original concert did not make the one-hour program. Kenny himself also performs, joining Dolly for “You Can’t Make Old Friends,” and “Islands in the Stream.” He is also on stage while she sings “I Will Always Love You” with her arm around him. 

Dolly Parton has another award to add to her shelf. The singer won an Emmy at this weekend’s Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which were held at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. Dolly’s Netflix holiday film “Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square” was voted Outstanding Television Movie, with Dolly picking up a trophy as executive producer. While this is Dolly’s first Emmy win, she was previously nominated in 1978 for a supporting role on the Cher special, aptly titled “Cher…Special.” ONE MORE THING! Dolly’s Imagination Library has been named the 2021 Friend of Education by the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE). The honor is given each year to an individual or organization for their contributions to preK-12 education.
