NASHVILLE (Billboard) - Seventy-year-old superstar Kenny Rogers is celebrating 50 years in the music business and has invited Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores along for the fun.

Sold exclusively at Cracker Barrel stores and on crackerbarrel.com, "Kenny Rogers: 50 Years" includes some of his biggest hits, including "The Gambler," "Lucille," "Coward of the County," "Lady" and "Islands in the Stream" (with Dolly Parton). There are also three new songs -- "She'll Believe in You," "Something's Wrong in Vegas" and "Only Time Will Tell."

Cracker Barrel, which has released sets by Alison Krauss & Union Station, Alabama, Amy Grant, Ricky Skaggs and Sara Evans, has sold more than 3 million units of exclusive music since launching its CB Music label in 2003, according to the company.
