By Annie Reuter

There’s a good chance you’ve already received a daily dose of Kenny Rogers with his new Geico commercial — and now, fans can get to know the man behind “The Gambler” during a streamed interview next month.

Rogers will be honored at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum with his own exhibit, Kenny Rogers: Through the Years, which will open on Aug. 15 and run through next June. In celebration of the exhibit, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will host a weekend of events that range from a songwriter session with Don Schlitz, the writer being Rogers’ “The Gambler” as well as “The Greatest” and “You Can’t Make Old Friends,” to an interview with Rogers.

The interview, which will be streamed on the museum’s website on Aug. 16, will have Rogers share memories and insight into his career. In an interview with last year, the singer talked about his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

“I’m so glad it’s happening now rather than at the peak of my success because I’m not sure I could have appreciated it as much then,” Rogers told “Hits come and go but the Hall of Fame is forever. There’s only 130 people in there. That’s pretty rare air.”

He added: “I’m always amazed at how well I’ve done and how long I’ve been able to do it. I don’t take that for granted. You have to really want to do this to do it as long as I’ve done it.”
