Country music legend Kenny Rogers has passed away at his home in Houston. He was 81.
The singer “passed away peacefully at home from natural causes under the care of hospice and surrounded by his family,” a statement said.
During his lifetime career, Kenny Rogers released 65 albums and sold over 165 million records. He won three Grammy Awards, 13 American Music Awards, six Country Music Association Awards, the CMA Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award, and the CMT Artist of a Lifetime Award. He was also a Country Music Hall of Fame inductee in 2013.
The country music world will miss him dearly and the singer will no more gamble with life but will be long remembered for ‘The Gambler” which made a massive success and inspired five television movies, and for his many other greats such as Island in the Stream, She Thinks I Still Care and Lucille among several other greats.
