Kenny Rogers visits KY3 in 2013 — FLASHBACK

Best known for songs like "The Gambler" and "Islands in the Stream", Grammy award winning singer Kenny Rogers, died on Friday at the age of 81.

Kenny Rogers enjoyed a six-decade career. Kenny, what's just as true is that one night, far away from any kind of bar, years ago I put one of your songs on (I don't even have to tell you which one) and let it loop on YouTube, and I just. I. "R.I.P. Gambler". No one else can take his place.

And sometimes, despite how very stupid and stubborn and heartbroken we all were (myself and the bar men included), we listened to your advice. But God is smiling. "May he rest easy", he wrote. I loved Kenny with all my heart.

Most people recalled how their childhood was made better by songs like Gambler. In five years, the food chain had more than 400 restaurants in US, Canada, the Middle East and Asia, but went under in 1998. I don't think I would either but I will make you a promise. We really got to know Kenny through the years and are thankful for the memories. "My prayers go out to Kenny's family". "The world has lost the greatest storyteller".

That may be why, as soon as we're all allowed to congregate and sing together again, "Islands in the Stream" will immediately ring out at karaoke joints worldwide: It's a song that encourages us to be in harmony, both musically and emotionally. It's about the legacy you leave behind and he was a great man.

"Kenny was one of those legendary smoky tenors".

PokerNews offers condolences to Rogers' friends, family, and fans the world around. "It's just era of country music we're in". He changed Country Music and had a voice like no other.

"An icon that will be missed by so many".

At the age of 61, Rogers had a brief comeback on the country charts in 2000 with a hit song Buy Me A Rose, thanks to his other favorite medium, television.

Born August 21, 1938, the multi-Grammy victor and Country Music Hall of Fame member is perhaps best remembered for his iconic country cross-over hit, 1978's "The Gambler", for which he won the Best Male Country Vocal Performance Grammy award in 1980. "He will live on in our hearts and with his music".

In the late 1970s and 1980s, Rogers achieved enormous success in the pop-country sphere. - Harvey Mason Jr., chair and interim president/CEO of the Recording Academy.
