For more than half a century, Rogers has been a fixture on the international music scene, recording some of the most revered music around the world. Now for the first time, this entertainment icon details his fascinating lifelong journey and incredible rise to fame with his memoir, LUCK OR SOMETHING LIKE IT (William Morrow; Hardcover; $27.99). Exploring the struggles of his long road, his story begins simply: growing up in Depression-era Texas, living in the projects, surviving in poverty, and listening to his mother, who always had just the right piece of wisdom. Rogers recounts his early years and musical career, sharing stories about the friendships that have meant the most to him, from Dottie West to Lionel Richie to Dolly Parton, and how through it all, he continues to make music with the passion that has defined him from the start.
During release week, Rogers will appear on Good Morning America, The View, The Colbert Report, CBS This Morning, Piers Morgan Tonight, Anderson Live, Fox News, Canada AM and others, in addition to NPR’s Morning Edition, The Diane Rehm Show, The Leonard Lopate Show, SiriusXM and numerous syndicated radio interviews. Rogers will also appear on a seven-city book tour beginning on October 2nd. Full details are listed below on where he’ll be appearing and meeting his fans in person.
