The documentary will follow Rogers and how he turned into one of the most legendary musicians of all-time. He released some country classics like “The Gambler,” “We’ve Got Tonight” and “Coward of the County.” Dolly Parton says about her friend and fellow country star, “Every time you thought he might be down and out he was the comeback kid. I had forgotten myself how many great hit records that Kenny had.”
