Throughout his iconic career, Rogers has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide. He has charted a record within each of the last seven decades. The first country artist to consistently sell out arenas, Rogers quickly became a pop superstar as well — his 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary Top 10's rank him fourth-best of all time among men, trailing only Elton John, Neil Diamond, and Elvis Presley. Rogers has recorded 24 No. 1 hits, 11 No. 1 albums, 25 Top 10 country albums and is the RIAA’s eighth best-selling male solo artist of all time. He has received three GRAMMY® Awards, 11 People's Choice Awards, 19 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards and six Country Music Association (CMA) Awards. The past several years have been some of the most active, creative, and rewarding of Rogers’ entire storied career. In fall 2015, he announced his retirement from touring on The Today Show, which leads the kick-off of his worldwide Farewell Tour. His first studio Christmas album release in seventeen years, Once Again It’s Christmas, hit stores on September 25, 2015 and marks Rogers’ third full studio release of all new recordings since 2011. In 2015, Rogers was named CMT's "Artist Of A Lifetime." In 2014, Rogers received his latest GRAMMY® Award nomination with Dolly Parton for “You Can’t Make Old Friends,” and in 2014 and 2015, his legendary career was showcased in a year-long exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. In 2013, Rogers was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and received the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award at the 47th Annual CMA Awards. Some of his recent festival appearances include Great Britain’s Glastonbury, Tennessee’s Bonnaroo, and Morocco’s Festival Timitar, where he played to a combined hundreds of thousands concert-goers.
