    The National Music Council (NMC) honored white-bearded and botched plastic surgery victim Kenny Rogers yesterday along with Suzanne Vega, Ann Johns Ruckert, John J. Mahlmann and the Musical Instrument Museum at its 29th Annual American Eagle Awards Luncheon at New York's Hard Rock Café. Congratulations to Mr. Rogers and all of the other honorees.

    The Kenster was chosen as a winner of the award for the charity work he has done throughout his entire prestigious career. He remains dedicated to assisting in the development of young artists and songwriters and has always used his music and fame to help those in need.

    Rogers joins an esteemed list of honorees that includes Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Dizzy Gillespie, Isaac Stern and Carnegie Hall, Dave Brubeck, Max Roach, Lena Horne, Phil Ramone, Clive Davis, Roy Clark, Clark Terry, Richie Havens, Hal and Stephen Sondheim and numerous others.

    Rogers will be heading over to Europe for a quick tour, beginning June 7. Further details on his upcoming television special, Kenny Rogers – The First 50 Years, will be announced shortly. The main question here is what about the next 50 years for Kenny?

    What is your favorite Kenny Rogers song? I dig "Islands in the Stream."
