Kenny Rogers, the legendary Country Music icon who delighted our souls with his golden voice has passed on at the age of 81.
The grandmaster of country music was said to have died at his home in Sandy Springs, Ga., of natural causes at 10:25pm on Friday, 20th March 2020.
Prior to his death, he was said to have been surrounded by close friends and family members.
A multiple-award music artiste, he sold over 50 million albums in the US alone and recorded about 120 hit songs, most of which made number 1 on major billboard charts across the world.
Some of his hit songs include, “Lady,” “You Decorated My Life,” “Every Time Two Fools Collide” with Dottie West, “Don’t Fall In Love with a Dreamer” with Kim Carnes, and “Coward of the County.”
Loved all over the world for his hit song, ‘Gambler’ Kenny Rogers at a point said he took to music as a way of finding respite from the shame of growing up as a poor child.
Kenny Rogers collaborated with several top-rated artistes in the United States of America, but his collaboration with Dolly Parton, Island in the Stream is what he will live to be remembered for.
‘The Gambler’s Last Deal’ tour” in 2016, offered him the perfect opportunity to bid farewell to his fans across the world.
Over the past two years, his physician has advised him to take a break from tours in other to help him focus on his deteriorating health.
The legendary artiste wasn’t just a musician; he ran various chains of restaurant while also contributing immensely to notable NGO’s like the Red Cross.
Amidst rising concern over the rapid spread of the COVID-19, a private memorial service will be held to honour Kenny Rogers who is survived by a wife and three sons.
Without a doubt, the world will never forget the legendary musician who also left behind a memoir, a New York Times Bestseller titled, Luck or Something like that.
