GRAMMY award-winning superstar and Country Music Hall of Fame member Kenny Rogers has announced that his final UK concert will be at LIVEWIRE Festival 2018, with special guest multi-GRAMMY award winning songwriter Linda Davis. For his only UK date in 2018 the enduring country and pop icon will headline the Saturday night slot of the festival which previously announced that BOYZ II Men and Matt Goss will co-headline the Thursday night.

The first country artist to consistently sell out arenas, Kenny Rogers has played to millions of fans around the world, performing songs from his long list of hits which comprise 24 Number Ones including ‘The Gambler’, ‘Lucille’, ‘Coward of the County’, ‘Lady’, ‘Islands in the Stream’, ‘She Believes In Me’, ‘We’ve Got Tonight’, ‘Daytime Friends’, ‘Through The Years’, ‘You Decorated My Life’, and ‘Buy Me A Rose’.

Incredibly, Kenny has charted a record within each of the last seven decades. He has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, making him one of the Top Ten Best Selling Male Solo Artists of All Time, according to the RIAA. Kenny has won many awards for his music and charity work, including three GRAMMY Awards, 19 American Music Awards, 11 People’s Choice Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards and six Country Music Association Awards, including the CMA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013.

Special guest for the evening will be the revered singer-songwriter Linda Davis. Labelled a “song stylist”, Linda’s unique ability to interpret a song has made her one of Nashville’s favourite vocalists. She quickly gained a legion of friends and fans in the music industry, one being superstar Reba McEntire. Their mutual respect led them into the studio together where they recorded a duet entitled Does He Love You that went on to become a #1 hit and earn both artists several awards including a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Collaboration. Speaking about Linda, Kenny says that “in this business, there are people who can sing and there are singers. Linda Davis is absolutely one of the best singers in the business”.
