    After 50 years, Rogers still excited about hits

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Kenny Rogers is proud of his 50-year career, yet he can’t help but hope that the best is still to come.

    “”For me, the whole goal is to stay relevant as long as I can,”” said Rogers, whose career retrospective, “”Kenny Rogers: 50 Years,”” came out Tuesday exclusively through Cracker Barrel restaurants.

    While the 12-track CD includes hits such as “”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 2006 album, “”Water & Bridges,”” charted three songs, including the No. 14 “”I Can’t Unlove You.””

    He’s now working on material for a new album.
