These are a pair of rare monochrome posters presenting the photography of the late Kenny Rogers from his 1989 Kenny Rogers Western Collection – both posters are professionally matted and framed. It is believed that these collectable posters were not for sale to the general public but are thought to be from a fan club pack.

Actual photo size is 15” h X 11 ¾”w.

Kenny Rogers was an American singer, songwriter, and actor. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013. Rogers was particularly popular with country audiences but also charted more than 120 hit singles across various genres, topping the country and pop album charts for more than 200 individual weeks in the United States alone. He sold more than 100 million records worldwide during his lifetime, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
The celebrated country singer, who died on March 20, 2020 of natural causes at the age of 81, wasn’t just great at telling stories through song. He also used photography, releasing several books, and receiving an honorary degree from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). “He’s obviously well-known as an entertainer,” said PPA president Ralph Romaguera when giving Rogers his award in 2014, “but he truly is a remarkably talented photographer, too.”
Covering landscapes and portraits, Rogers’ images shift between giddily capturing the larger-than-life personas of such friends as Ray Charles and Dolly Parton, to documenting the natural beauty of America’s vast countryside. He could make familiar sights look like a fairy tale: his glowing night time shot of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, proudly uploaded to his Facebook page in 2017, makes the 16th US president look more like a mystical levitating god than a statue for tourists to mill around.
Because of the age of these posters, there are areas of wear and tear, particularly on the edges of the frames, but the wear is minimal. I have done my best to take photos where any wear can be seen.
