Kenny Rogers, who was recently inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, will be honored during the 47th Annual CMA Awards.

Rogers will receive The Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award, with a tribute featuring performances by Jennifer Nettles, Rascal Flatts and Darius Rucker.

"Kenny Rogers is a living legend and Country Music trailblazer," said Ed Hardy, president of the CMA Board of Directors. "He is more than deserving of this honor and what is sure to be a stellar tribute. He represents everything that this Award was intended to recognize when we initiated it last year with Willie."

Rogers, a five-time CMA Awards winner, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame Sunday night. Rogers has sold more than 120 million records worldwide, recorded 24 No. 1 songs and 12 No. 1 albums.

The 47th Annual CMA Awards will air Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC7.
