As a singer-songwriter, Kenny Rogers has won hundreds of awards and charted more than 120 hit singles, but beyond his busy marital life (five marriages) and his Kenny Rogers Roasters eateries, most of us little about this surprisingly reticent man. This memoir changes that. Luck or Something Like It reveals how the young Houston musician experimented with doo-wop, jazz, and mainstream pop before settling into the country genre for which he's been known. It also describes how his deep faith and the importance to his life of artists including Elvis Pressley, Dolly Parton, and Ray Charles. He also delineates his complicated relationship with the Nashville country music establishment, revealing how his evolving musical preferences sometimes made him an outsider among purists.
