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.

You gotta know when to fold ’em... RIP. 

The Old Guard of country music is passing away. Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Marle Haggard, now Kenny Rogers... Not many greats left anymore.

I love western ballads more and I had LP's of both Robbins & Laine in Australia when I was a young lad.
