Kenny Rogers and Wanda on their wedding day

For years, Kenny says he felt most at home onstage. Since he and his wife of 10 years, Wanda, welcomed two little boys into the world, things have changed.

These days, Kenny spends a lot of time at home with Justin and Jordan—his 3-year-old identical twins—and his older sons, Chris and Kenny. "Here's what I've learned about raising boys...if you keep 'em busy, they're fine," he says. "You let 'em get bored, they'll dismantle your house board by board."

He's also learned a lot about love over the years. When Kenny married Wanda, he didn't write vows like most grooms. Instead, he composed a special song for his bride-to-be.

"I wrote a song for her that I called 'As God As My Witness,' and I thought it was a very cool song that said everything I wanted to say," he says. "I'm much more comfortable singing than talking. No, it was something I really had always wanted to do for her."

Kenny shares some of the lyrics with Oprah. "Once in a lifetime, the right love comes by and with no rhyme or reason you never know why," he sings. "You just wake up one morning and nothing's the same for you. The kisses taste sweeter. The touch just feels right."
