Kenny Rogers is no more, he died at the age of 81, on March 20 2020. He ruled country music between the 70’s and 80’s. This three time Grammy winner is survived by his wife Wanda and four sons.

I fell in love with country music because of him.  His songs Lady , You and I , Lucille, The gambler , Coward of the county, Don’t fall in love with a dreamer are some of my favorites.

He retired from his singing career in 2018 for health reasons. His gospel music too has been among my favorites. Although I do not listen to any other kind of music these days other than gospel music Kenny Rogers is the exception.

He was also a song writer, actor, an avid photographer, record producer and a successful entrepreneur. He owned a chain of restaurants called Roasters. He wrote a novel co authored by Mike Blakely  called, “What are the chances”.

This legend will be missed by all music lovers.

  1. He is one of the country music legends. I didn’t know he also sang gospel songs. My favourites are Gambler, Coward of the Country, Lucy and Vows (goes) Unbroken. I can’t remember the exact title of the last song.
