GAC Time Machine: Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler”

Kenny Rogers as "The Gambler."

Tonight is the premiere of Kenny Rogers: The First 50 Years – airing at 8:30 p.m. Eastern, only on GAC! In this special, Kenny is joined by superstars including Dolly Parton, Tim McGraw, Wynonna, Billy Currington, Darius Rucker, Alison Krauss, Lionel Richie, Sheena Easton, Smokey Robinson, Chris Isaak and original members of the First Edition. They’re all singing songs from Kenny’s treasure trove of hits. Browse our exclusive photo gallery from the concert »

Kenny also performs his classics, including one of his best-known hits, “The Gambler.” In this latest trip in the “GAC Time Machine,” we thought we’d unearth a clip of the 1978 No. 1, played with scenes from Kenny’s 1980 TV movie of the same name. See if you can spot another country legend in the clip. Hint: she first appears at the 47 second mark.
