Kenny Rogers

Country star Kenny Rogers has signed with Warner Bros Records, his latest partnership with the major, the first of which was with Reprise in the late 1960s. Most recently Rogers was allied to EMI, though, as previously reported, earlier this year he sued that major over various royalty payment grievances.

Confirming his new long-term deal with Warner, Rogers himself told reporters: “I’m looking forward to returnin home to Warner Bros Records after all these years. Our history together, combined with the incredible team that’s in place now, provides the catalyst for a great new relationship going forward”.

Meanwhile, John Esposito, boss of Warner Music Nashville, added: “With his unique storytelling ability and soulful voice, Kenny Rogers’ music has touched generations across all musical formats. He has not only had a remarkable career but is truly an American icon. Warner Music Nashville looks forward to continuing his musical legacy but more importantly, having him back home at Warner Bros Records”.
