The tribute block begins at Monday at 8/7c with an unforgettable evening featuring performances from three of country music’s most influential artists in Kenny, Dolly And Willie: Something Inside So Strong. The Emmy®-winning 1989 NBC special was originally filmed at the Johnson Space Center in Rogers’ hometown of Houston, and captured Rogers, Dolly Parton, and Willie Nelson in rare form as they took the stage in front of a lively audience of NASA employees and their families. You don’t want to miss a priceless medley where the trio take turns singing each other’s biggest hits such as “The Gambler,” “Two Doors Down,” and “Mammas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys,” and Rogers explains the inspiration behind his 1977 hit “Sweet Music Man” before Nelson puts his trademark twist on the Rogers-penned fan-favorite.

Then, at 9/8c, we proudly present an in-depth and candid look at one of country music’s most-enduring friendships in the 1985 HBO special Kenny And Dolly: Real Love. Real Love gives viewers the ultimate backstage pass with behind-the-scenes coverage documenting Parton and Rogers’ rehearsals blended with live performances from their joint 1985 Real Love tour. The pair’s unparalleled chemistry is on full display throughout the night, as they charmingly banter between performing some of their best-loved hits both together and solo. Performances of “Islands In The Stream,” “9 To 5,” “We’ve Got Tonight,” “Real Love,” and many more will make you smile from ear to ear.

“Kenny Rogers is one of the most prolific showmen in country music,” said Sarah Weidman, Head Of Original Programming, Development and Multi-Platform Content for AXS TV. “His music has influenced and inspired generations of artists and fans alike, all across the world. AXS TV is proud to celebrate his incredible life and career with this block of classic specials, putting the spotlight on two of his finest performances as he brings the house down alongside his close friends and fellow icons Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson.”
