Kenny Rogers paid a visit to Dollywood in East Tennessee this past weekend to raise funds for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a program that sends free books to children from birth through age 5. Rogers performed to a sold-out audience at Dollywood’s D.P. Celebrity Theatre and raised $60,000 for the Imagination Library program.

“You know she’s an amazing person. She can take something and really grow it into something fantastic. Dolly has shipped over 70 million books! I think it’s a great idea,” Rogers said. “I’m glad to be a part of this and I hope it helps!”

When it was time to count the money, Rogers’ performance raised over $60,000 for Dolly’s Imagination Library bringing the total raised during the ongoing benefit concert series to more than $635,000.

“I’m so grateful to Kenny for wanting to help my Imagination Library,” said Dolly Parton. “He’s always been such a great friend to me and I’m so happy that he made time to come to Dollywood and I know the fans just loved it. Kenny, if you’re reading this, I want to you to know just how much I appreciate you and you know I’ll always love you!”
