PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
March 7, 2011 marked another new chapter in the remarkable career of music legend and American icon, Kenny Rogers.  That is the day his first inspirational gospel album, The Love Of God, became available exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations nationwide.  Featuring 12 uplifting songs sung only the way Rogers can sing them, the record includes all-new recordings of classic hymns and gospel and contemporary songs that have touched him musically and spiritually through the years, dating back to his childhood growing up in Houston where he regularly attended church with his family.  At the heart of the record is hope and peace.
Rogers, one of music's legendary voices, has put his indelible stamp on classics like "Will The Circle Be Unbroken," "I'll Fly Away," "Amazing Grace" and "In The Sweet By And By" and turned in beautifully poignant performances on more recently composed songs such as "Peace" (written by Michael McDonald & Beth Nielsen Chapman), "Grace" (written by Michael W. Smith & Martin Smith) and "The Rock Of Your Love" (written by Vince Gill, Al Anderson & Leslie Satcher).  Guest artists appearing on the album include The Whites on "I'll Fly Away," Winfield's Locket on "In The Sweet By And By" and Point of Grace on "Circle Of Friends.""What an incredible album this has turned out to be," Rogers says of The Love Of God.  "It seems I have a personal relationship with every song on it.  'In The Sweet By And By' was my mom's favorite song.  When I was a kid, as I was leaving to go to school, I remember hearing her sing along with that song on the radio as she did her morning ironing.  Music is by far the best 'memory creator' I know, and that memory is very special to me."
Marked by strikingly fresh musical and vocal arrangements, the warm and inviting album is quite eclectic, yet a common thread running through each of the songs ties the project neatly together.  From the exhilarating opening track, "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" - which cleverly intertwines country, R&B, gospel, bluegrass and choral music, to the sweeping strings and heartfelt vocal performance on the calming "Peace," to the perfectly rootsy "I'll Fly Away" (the most authentic bluegrass recording of Rogers' career), featuring unmistakably genuine harmony vocals by The Whites, The Love Of God begins with three fascinating musical statements that set the stage for a stirring collection of songs. "The trick to doing a good concept record is surrounding yourself with unique musicians, singers, and creative talent," Rogers says.  "When you hear 'I'll Fly Away,' there is no question that The Whites are singing.  Anything they sing takes on their own special sound, and it feels perfect for this record."

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
COWBOY'S BACK IN TOWN Trace Adkins continues to conquer new worlds. He has long been country music's alpha male, a man whose commanding presence and once-in-ageneration baritone have made him a pillar of the contemporary Nashville sound. But such are his other gifts-a restless intellect, wide-ranging interests, great ability as a communicator-that it was perhaps inevitable that his influence would spread well beyond the bounds of the genre.In the past decade, Trace has made his mark as an actor, both on television and in the movies, an author, a voiceover artist and commercial spokesman, a social commentator, and a reality show participant. His effect on businessman and showman Donald Trump was such that after his initial and highly successful appearance on Celebrity Apprentice, he was invited back as a boardroom advisor. He has turned his entertainingly articulated views into a well-received book, A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, and has even inspired an action comic book series, Luke McBain, that has proven to be one of the genre's hottest sellers. "I guess it's that I'm not afraid to get outside my comfort zone and try new things," he says, adding, "I never do them just for what I consider the commercial value. I choose things I enjoy doing." The obvious relish Trace brings to everything from talk show appearances to movie roles has made him one of the most widely visible of country's top-tier entertainers, and provides just the right counterpoint to the bottom line-his growing reputation as one of country's all-time greats. The breadth and depth of his catalog points to the diversity and complexity of his musical approach and of his personality. He is the man who gave us one of modern-day country's rowdiest classics, "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk," and one of its most touching, "You're Gonna Miss This," which earned two of his four Grammy nominations, became his third chart-topping hit, and was named the ACM's Single of the Year. He is equally convincing across a musical spectrum that stretches from "Hot Mama" to "Songs About Me," from "(This Ain't No) Thinkin' Thing" to "Then They Do." With the release of his latest, Cowboy's Back In Town, Trace launches a new chapter in one of the genre's most storied careers. Musically, he shows himself to be at the top of his game.
