Saw him many years ago . Great singer and of coarse all the ladies loved him . What a career . R.I.P. Kenny
First concert I saw in the round was Kenny Rogers. To this day I remember how good that show was.
Kenny Rogers passing is saddening...
American Icon in my life..
Somewhat cheesy at times but always cool... God Rest His Sole
I hadn’t heard this he was a staple back in the day! Even his silly movies were fun.
When I was a kid, I thought the lyrics to Lucille were "four hundred children and a glockenspiel." Not sure how I knew what a glockenspiel was, but I did.
He knew when to fold 'em. RIP.
Oh no. I haven’t heard from him in so long. He was everywhere on TV and radio for a couple of years there. Great songwriter and charismatic performer.
Remember his chicken restaurant chain that was the the talk of the town for awhile and then disappeared like smoke?
Sorry to hear that.
RIP sad news

I’ll be durned. I didn’t see that one coming at all. Of course, Glen Frey was a surprise too.
He had a great voice and chose great songs. He really did some wonderful stuff in his solo career. He also had a role in the development of the Eagles, being the person that brought Don Henley and Shiloh to SoCal.
One of my favorite artists of the time. Peaceful resting Kenny.
Not the best news...
I don't hear Glockenspiel out of it ... but I just tried to (the fourhundred children I get ... he met a real fertile dude there...). Maybe a german native won't get to hear that.
Sad. He'll be missed...
My dad used to sing it as, you picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel, 400 children and a crotch that won't heal.
R.I.P. Kenny. My son got the chances to sing with him on stage for two different concerts during Kenny's Christmas shows in Detroit. He would invite one of the local High School Choirs to sing backup. Kenny was a kind soul, and in a world of terrible behavior, he was a role model for them.
The irony was that some of the choir, didn't know that he was famous, because he was that well grounded, and humble.
To give the youth an opportunity like that took risk the others may have avoided. Backstage, I asked why take the risk if the kids can't stay on pitch, or have no sense of timing? One of his assistants made the comment that if they motivate only one child to love music and behave properly, it was worth the risk.
I really enjoyed how some of his songs were sung in that natural story telling way. They just keep the listeners attention and you walk away with the meaning. RIP Kenny.
