The photography of.... Kenny Rogers

This week country music singer Kenny Rogers passed away at the age of 81. Coming across my news feed tonight was an item I did not know about; Kenny Rogers was also a photographer who released a few books and earned an honorary degree from the PPA,and was trained by professionals.

This is an older interview with Rogers about his photography, and is linked from the article above, but it goes deeper into who he trained with, includes some interesting quotes, and seems to be the basis for much of the Guardian article.

Here's his Instagram account, mixed in with the usual PR type stuff are shots that Rogers took.
Also a jazz fan and bassist (electric only) that was an unexpected treat.

Christian McBride posted that clip a couple of years ago on his facebook, I had no idea about this side of Kenny Rogers until then either.

And this one I found today:
