In the early 70s Kenny Rogers and The 1st Edition toured NZ so often it seemed like they lived here. I believe Rogers launched his solo career on an NZ Country music tv show.

He turned back toward the window
Crushed out his cigarette
And faded off to sleep
And somewhere in the darkness
The gambler he broke even
And in his final words
I found an ace that I could keep

Looking at another reference it seems that the NZ tours were seen as a way to clear some debts. Some members of the 1st Edition eventually wanted more money to do the tours leading to the breakup.
