The Gambler is Kenny Rogers’ seminal classic. Selling over thirty-five million copies worldwide, the album is one of Rogers’ most popular releases and established him as one of the most successful artists of the 70s and 80s. Rogers’ interpretation of the title track became his signature tune. The Gambler also features the hit “She Believes In Me.” “The Gambler” would earn Rogers a GRAMMY® for Best Male Country Vocal Performance.
Kenny Rogers took a bit of a chance in releasing this loosly based concept album at the time, but boy, did it pay off! Sales for the album went through the roof, as the title track and “She Believes In Me” became pop crossover hits, with the latter reaching the pop Top 10. Later, “The Gambler” was turned into a string of made-for-television movies.
