Soon after joining the United Artists label, Rogers released his debut solo work under the title “Love Lifted Me”, which was followed by a more successful self-titled second studio attempt. The latter album spawned several singles, but it was “Lucille” that helped the album reach #1 on the Country charts. “Lucille” was so popular at the time that it topped the charts both in the US and the UK and, with more than five million copies sold, inspired the recording of many covers by various artists. A year later in 1978, Kenny Rogers came out with perhaps his most commercially successful album to date entitled “The Gambler”, which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums, and produced a single called “The Gambler”, which won a Grammy Award for Rogers.
