The 75-year-old Grammy-winner was present with his family and friends at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, where 'Through the Years', a biographical look at his professional and personal life was exhibited, reported People magazine.
"I haven't always been this old," Rogers joked to family and friends.
"When I was a member of the first edition (of Hall of Fame), I was a happening dude! I had long black hair, a black beard, shades and an earring. I was totally groovy. I woke up the other day and I was really old!," said the country singer.
