Kenny Rogers and the original members of First Edition will participate in a panel discussion at The CMA Theatre inside the Country Music Hall of Fame on Saturday, Jan. 17 at 2 p.m. Central.
The band’s original lineup includes Rogers, Mike Settle, Terry Williams, Mary Miller, and Gene Lorenzo.
The First Edition was best-known for the singles “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In” (1967), and 1968’s “But You Know I Love You.” Later billed as Kenny Rogers and the First Edition, the group hit the Top 10 on the country charts with 1969’s “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town,” a tune penned by Mel Tillis.
Rogers, of course, would later go on to a successful solo career, and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013.
This program will be streamed live at countrymusichalloffame.org. It is included with museum admission and free to museum members. There will be limited seating and a program pass will be required.
