Released in 1979, Kenny Rogers’ The Gambler was a pop crossover success, topping Billboard’s Country Albums chart at #1 and reaching #12 on the Billboard 200. The album’s smash hit ballad, “She Believes In Me,” topped Billboard’s Country and Adult Contemporary Singles charts and peaked at #5 on the Hot 100. The album’s title track won two GRAMMY Awards: Best Country Vocal Performance, Male and Best Country Song. The album is five-times Platinum-certified by the RIAA with U.S. sales totaling more than five million copies.
