Rogers, who has been in the music industry for almost 60 years, has charted over 120 singles across various music genres, but one song that stands out above all the rest is his #1 song, “The Gambler.”

What is now considered Rogers’ signature song, “The Gambler” hit number one in 1979 and won Rogers a Grammy for best male country performance in 1980.

GRAMMY Throwback.
