Altogether, Kenny Roger has managed to accumulate a net worth of $250 million from his various projects.  His career first began during the 1950s when he recorded albums with the Scholars. Although he was not the lead singer at the time, he was able to become the lead singer after the band ended. By 1958, he became a member of the Bobby Doyle Trio and signed a contract with Columbia Records. This band was unfortunately short-lived and ended in 1965. Over the following two years, he was a part of two other failed ventures. His first success arrived in 1967 when he created the musical group, The First Edition.
