He knew when to fold 'em, life gets tougher after 80 as I am becoming aware of.

I liked Kenny Rogers.  I used to date a guy that could have been Kenny's twin or younger brother.  He looked just like Kenny Rogers.
Have a wonderful day!

I'm very sorry to hear this. To be honest I was not aware Kenny was still with us.

I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Kenny Rogers.  He made an indelible mark on music.  Naturally, I started to seek out and read everything that is being written now as well as hitting YouTube to listen to some of my personal favorites (I highly recommend looking up on YouTube his song "Ruby" performed when he was with The First Edition in 1969 -- it will put a chill straight up your spine as you listen to that deep, soulful voice of his).

Here is the blurb from USA Today (Entertainment) written by Juli Thanki (Nashville, TN) on 3-22-2020:

Rogers notched his first solo top 20 country hit with 1975's "Love Lifted Me." Other hits followed, including the chart-toppers "Lucille," "Daytime Friends" and "Love or Something Like It."

In late 1978, Rogers released a single called "The Gambler," written by an unknown songwriter in his 20s named Don Schlitz. The song tells the story of a chance meeting on a train.

Rogers wasn't the first to record it, but his rendition became the most enduring version. "The Gambler" won him a Best Male Country Vocal Performance Grammy, and became his signature song. It also led to a starring role in a series of made-for-television "Gambler" movies.

RIP....

Vocalist Kenny Rogers, who dominated the pop and country charts in the 1970s and 1980s with a string of sleekly tailored hits and won three Grammys, has died. He was 81. Rogers “passed away peacefully at home from natural causes under the care of hospice and surrounded by his family,” a representative for the singer said in a statement. Due to the national COVID-19 emergency, the family is planning a small private service at this time with a public memorial planned for a later date.

Hi! :) :D

May he rest in peace. I didn't know his music not part of my generation. Nevertheless still wish him well in his after life. :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose:
