Dolly Parton For Glastonbury Festival 2014?


Dolly Parton Glastonbury Festival Kenny Rogers

Is legendary country star Dolly Parton in line for Glastonbury 2014? A suspicious gap in her UK June touring schedule suggests it could be a possibility.

The 'Jolene' singer would make a wonderful addition to next year's Glastonbury Festival line-up and, although nothing has yet been confirmed, it looks like there's a major gap to fill on her 2014 UK summer tour. The festival is set for June 25th - 29th 2014 with bands playing, as per usual, on the last three days. Although Dolly will be hitting London's O2 Arena on Friday 27th, she has the following weekend free which would certainly open up a Glastonbury opportunity. Exciting stuff! Plus, her fellow country star and 'Islands In The Stream' collaborator Kenny Rogers hit up the Pyramid Stage at this year's event and, after a show like that, there's definitely a fresh demand for country legends.

We are hoping, of course, that Dolly doesn't wind up in any more accidents while hitting her UK tour next year, following yesterday's 'fender bender' which took place in Nashville. She revealed in a statement yesterday (October 21st 2013): 'I was in a fender bender this morning, here in Nashville. But I am all good. Just a little tired and sore, resting at home.'

Kenny Rogers Is Among The Latest Additions To Country Hall Fame


Kenny Rogers

The Country Music Hall of Fame has picked Kenny Rogers, “Cowboy” Jack Clement and Bobby Bare as the latest musicians to induct as members. The three musicians were named as the hall’s newest inductees at a ceremony, held in Nashville, Tennessee this morning. The hall will induct Rogers in the Modern Era category, Clement in the Non-Performer category and Bare in the Veterans Era category. All three musicians will officially accept the honour at an invitation-only ceremony at the Country Music Hall and Museum later this year.

Rogers himself commented on the news: "The accomplishments I've had all pale by comparison to this one," from the podium, before welling up with tears. The musician definitely does have a considerable record of achievements behind him – at 74, Kenny Rogers can call himself a singer, songwriter, producer, actor, author and restauranteur. He holds nine Number One albums and twenty-one Number One singles – a substantial record for a country performer, as the genre doesn’t typically enjoy mainstream success.

In an interview with FoxNews.com, Rogers explained that "Her parents are two years younger than me. They called me when we started dating and said, 'We want you to know we didn't appreciate what you're doing with our daughter,' and I said, 'First of all I don't blame you. I don't think I would either but I will make you a promise. I will never lie to her and I will never lie to you.'"

Kenny Rogers' Memoirs Touch On Phone Sex Scandals


Kenny Rogers

Now a bonafide country music legend, Kenny Rogers has revealed that in the past he was much more rock and roll than you might expect, with his newly published memoirs exposing his bad boy past.

In the new book, Luck or Something Like It, Roger has admitted that he enjoyed dabbling in the occasional drink and drugs party, as well as becoming embroiled in his fair share of sex scandal, particularly the one occasion in the early 90's when Rogers was accused by three different women to have conned them into playing phone sex games with him. He also divulges on his plastic surgery, something he admitted to having back in 2006, and admits that at the time he was less than pleased with the results.

But the auto-biography is not all scandals and gossip, with Kenny charting his life from being born in Depression-era Texas to an alcoholic father, before finding music and eventually becoming one of the biggest selling stars of all time. Rogers had previously told Fox News that he could have filled the book with his sordid affairs, but his co-author Patsi Bale Cox, who died last year, insisted that he had no reason to fill it with gossip when he had more than enough positive material to fill the book.
