You can read the full press release about the AXS TV Kenny Rogers concerts below.

Los Angeles – (April 2, 2020) – AXS TV, the premier U.S. cable channel for music content, celebrates the life and legacy of GRAMMY®-winning country music superstar Kenny Rogers with a pair of classic concerts airing Monday, April 6 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. The April 6 concerts and additional broadcasts support Kenny Cares benefiting MusiCares® COVID-19 Artist Relief Fund. (Text KENNYCARES to 41444 or visit musicares.org/kennycares to donate.)

The tribute block begins at 8 p.m. ET with an unforgettable evening featuring performances from three of country music’s most influential artists in Kenny, Dolly And Willie: Something Inside So Strong. The Emmy®-winning 1989 NBC special was originally filmed at the Johnson Space Center in Rogers’ hometown of Houston, and captured Rogers, Dolly Parton, and Willie Nelson in rare form as they took the stage in front of a lively audience of NASA employees and their families. Highlights include a priceless medley where the trio take turns singing each other’s biggest hits such as “The Gambler,” “Two Doors Down,” and “Mammas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys,” and Rogers explains the inspiration behind his 1977 hit “Sweet Music Man” before Nelson puts his trademark twist on the Rogers-penned fan-favorite.

Then, at 9 p.m. ET, stay tuned for an in-depth and candid look at one of country music’s most-enduring friendships in the 1985 HBO special Kenny And Dolly: Real LoveReal Love gives viewers the ultimate backstage pass with behind-the-scenes coverage documenting Parton and Rogers’ rehearsals blended with live performances from their joint 1985 Real Love tour. The pair’s unparalleled chemistry is on full display throughout the night, as they charmingly banter between performing some of their best-loved hits both together and solo. Highlights include performances of “Islands In The Stream,” “9 To 5,” “We’ve Got Tonight,” “Real Love,” and many more.

“Kenny Rogers is one of the most prolific showmen in country music,” said Sarah Weidman, Head Of Original Programming, Development and Multi-Platform Content for AXS TV. “His music has influenced and inspired generations of artists and fans alike, all across the world. AXS TV is proud to celebrate his incredible life and career with this block of classic specials, putting the spotlight on two of his finest performances as he brings the house down alongside his close friends and fellow icons Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson.”

The main goal of our events calendar is to get as many events as possible in one place to make it easier for fans. All events have ticket links, venue information, date and time. But some events have more, and some have a lot more and are basically event previews. It depends on the information available at the time we post the event and if we are able to update that event, etc. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events in general, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. Recently we’ve added Event Reminders for when certain shows will be airing. For example, if an event is taped, the reminder will be for when the event airs. We do our best to maintain around 300 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We started with US & Canadian professional wrestling promotions but have recently been adding more events from around the world. Including all different types of entertainment events. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day, so you may have to click the link at the bottom to see more events on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on these event pages. If you’re a fan who went to or watched any of these events, feel free to leave a comment below. *AXS TV Airing Kenny Rogers Classic Concerts On Monday To Benefit Charity DiscussPW 2020 News *
