Kenny Rogers death: Country music star dies aged 81

Three-time Grammy Award winner country-pop pioneer who dominated the charts during the Seventies and Eighties, has died aged 81.

A representative said he “passed away peacefully at home from natural causes under the care of hospice and surrounded by his family”.

Rogers was best-known for ballads including “The Gambler”, “Coward of the Country”, and “Lucille”.

He once said he believed his ballads “say what every man wants to say and that every woman wants to hear”.……

I adore The Gambler. Kenny is on multiple playlists of mine. Growing up I have fond memories of cruising around town with my Mom singing his songs together at the top of our lungs. Thanks for the sweet memories Mr. Rogers, you’ve touched our lives definitely and that will not be forgotten.

Yup. Elvis is good stuff. 50s music was my 1st interest at about 5 years old.

I still love that stuff.

My Dad was a teen in the 50s and still had his records so I had those to explore.

Well yeah, most do love Johnny cash. Regardless of liking country or not. He was the OG "bad boy" of rock n roll country.

That´s funny you noticed that about the cats, sometimes my cats enjoy Elvis, as do I. :1:

I would have guessed You weren’t a country music fan based on what I know of Your musical taste.

I like some of it. Even as a teen metalhead I appreciated Johnny Cash, Jerry Reed and Willie Nelson .

I have been listening to country from the late 30s to early 60s recently because I discovered that Tuesday likes it.

She is scared of most music, but for some reason that old country sound soothes her.
Pedal Steel guitar sound maybe?

I had a cat who loved Pink Floyd. He would come listen to it with me and sit enraptured by it.
Even if it was cranked up.

You got me. I was NEVER into country all. The most country I get is having "urban cowboy" as my favorite John travolta movie...haha

I will wear my cowboy hat in his honor today.

Ha ha... Your music taste doesn’t run to Country music I’d guess.

Those two are polar opposites. No disrespect to Kenny but Willie is a Musical and cultural icon.

Kenny had a couple hits and a Chicken restaurant franchise.

I’ve had two things run together in my mind , an interesting memory phenomenon.

May Kenny Rest In Peace.

I knew this melody of "The Gambler" from the early years, despite it was an American song, therefore evil capitalist propaganda to my country of birth. We have had a Czechoslovakian singer, who composed similar song in Czechoslovakian language and it´s very beautiful.…
