Kenny Rogers is among the best-selling artists of all time, with over 100 million records sold. After starting in country, he crossed over into various styles while charting 120 hit singles.
Kenny performs one of his big hits ‘You Picked a Fine Time to Leave Me Lucille.’ The audience claps as a guitarist begins to strum, and Kenny smiles and points at a few fans before singing.
He wears a purple blazer with a black shirt and black pants. Kenny’s band backs him on stage under the purple lighting. He walks around the stage while singing slowly with his hand in his jacket pocket.
During the chorus of the song, his background singers begin singing along with the audience. Kenny pulls the microphone away and smiles. He waits and says, “Well, just take over. Why don’t you.”
The fans sing along, and Kenny whistles to the song while bopping his head. He tells the crowd to rest, sarcastically saying he knows how tiring that must’ve been. Kenny interacts with the crowd the whole time.
Kenny tells them to stop swaying in a joking tone, and he crosses his arms, smiles with his eyes closed, and sways back and forth. In the end, he encourages everyone to sing the last chorus, and they all do.
Kenny and the audience sing, “You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille. With four hungry children and a crop in the field. I’ve had some bad times, lived through some sad times, but this time your hurting won’t heal. You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille.”
