After 50 years, Rogers still excited about hits

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Kenny Rogers is proud of his 50-year career, but he can't help but hope that the best is yet to come.

He told The Associated Press that his goal is to stay relevant as long as he can.

A career retrospective, "Kenny Rogers: 50 Years" came out Tuesday exclusively through Cracker Barrel restaurants.

While the 12-track CD includes hits like "Lucille" and "The Gambler," it also features three new songs.

Rogers, 70, became a superstar in the 1970s and '80s. His career cooled in the '90s, but he continues to have hits. His last album, 2006's "Water & Bridges," charted three songs, including the hit "I Can't Unlove You."
