The Gambler has folded his last hand ... RIP Kenny Rogers

Mon Mar 23, 2020 6:02 pm

Though most probably know his song "The Gambler", Kenny Rogers had dozens of top hits and was well regarded across the music world.

He was 81.

"And the night got deathly quiet
And his faced lost all expression
He said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy
You gotta learn to play it right"

Rest in peace Mr. Rogers, thanks for decades of good music and times.

he was a legend for those who loved the country-western genre.

he definitely knew how to fold, and walk away right as the coronavirus got crazy.

Was more familiar with his pop output like Lady, Islands in the Stream & We've Got Tonight. That and his restaurants, which apparently now is not owned by him.

Rest in Peace.
