(Webster) County music legend Kenny Rogers has announced a number of national television appearances to promote his new Christmas album and annual holiday tour. We were sent the following details:
On Wednesday, December 2, Kenny Rogers will attend CMT's "Artists Of The Year" special where he will be presented with the prestigious Artist of a Lifetime award presented by Ram Trucks. The live broadcast from Nashville will air nationwide on CMT at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
On the same evening on the History Channel, Rogers will travel back to the 1970s to recount cultural elements of Christmas that came about during that decade for HISTORY's "Christmas Through The Decades" series. The show airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
"Christmas Through The Decades" goes back in time to explore what Christmas was like not too long ago. Special guests Jillian Michaels, LeAnn Rimes, Dascha Polanco and more will reveal how classic holiday films, fads, television specials, songs and toys created lasting impressions that are still felt during 21st century Christmas celebrations. Beginning with the 1960s and concluding with the 1990s, HISTORY travels through the past and reminisces about the most wonderful time of the year.
And finally on Monday, December 14, Rogers will perform a song from his first new Christmas studio album in seventeen years titled Once Again It's Christmas (Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville) on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," airing at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT.
An exclusive edition of Once Again It's Christmas is available now at Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores with an exclusive bonus track featuring The Time Jumpers (including Vince Gill) - "(I Love The) Winter Weather."
Kenny Rogers is currently in the middle of his 34th Annual Christmas & Hits tour, Once Again It's Christmas featuring Linda Davis. He recently announced on TODAY that his upcoming worldwide tour will be his last.
