Kenny Rogers grew up poor, but he built one of the most incredible houses among music stars. The music legend bought a $3.5 million Georgia farm, and here is a look at the magnificent home that inspired much of his music.
Kenny Rogers goes beyond being a musician, songwriter, actor, and record producer and continuously lives on as an entertainment icon. For the entirety of his long-standing career, Rogers chartered more than 420 hit singles across various genres.
Rogers had it all, fame, fortune, and skill that last a lifetime. He won 3 Grammy Awards and 18 American Music Awards. It is pretty hard to imagine this music star growing up poor given his legendary status. But, Rogers was once an ordinary person with just a glimmer of hope and dream.

Rogers remains a pop culture icon even after his death. He died of natural causes at 81 in 2020. The music legend wasn’t only missed by fans but his family and colleagues who reflected on his memories in his biography “Kenny Rogers special.”
In the documentary posted on YouTube, Rogers made his last on-camera appearance before his death, and he talked about some of the hardships he overcame in his lifetime. He also recalled how it felt growing up in a musical family.

In the documentary, which chronicles Rogers’s humble beginning to his rise to fame, his brother Roy and sister Sandy alongside fellow stars including Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Chris Stapleton, Reba McEntire, and Little Big Town, pay tribute to the country music star. Remembering her beloved friend, Parton said:
“With all that Kenny has made in his life, he like me, was brought up very poor. We understood that world, and how much we wanted things.”
