ATLANTA — “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em. Know when to fold ’em…” Country music legend Kenny Rogers has migrated to that big recording studio in the sky. The 3-time Grammy winner and Hall of Fame inductee died on Friday. He was 81. Contrary to viral scuttlebutt, Kenny’s quietus had nothin’ to do with the novel coronavirus. A family representative said he “passed away peacefully at home from natural causes under the care of hospice and surrounded by his family.”

Kenny, who concocted 24 number one songs, is well-known for a concatenation of classic hits that include “The Gambler,” “Lady,” “Lucille,” “She Believes In Me” and “Through the Years.” He also collaborated with Dolly Parton to produce some of the greatest duets ever, namely “Islands in the Stream,” “Love is Strange,” “Real Love” and “You Can’t Make Old Friends.”

Kenny Rogers RIP.

Heaven just gained a country music icon.

  7. As a Black girl growing up in the ’70s & 80’s I listened to The Gambler, Coward of the County, Islands in the Stream, and so many other songs by Kenny Rogers. He was magic. His songs crossed racial lines. I remember even him and Lionel Richie were good friends. Lionel Richie was a God back then, so if he said you were cool…then you were cool. Yet, he did not need Lionel’s endorsement because he had that voice and those Grizzly Adams’ looks. RIP!
