Old-school country music fan here, and I always loved Kenny Roger's songs because they were generally pretty easy to sing solo on my guitar, and generally lie within my vocal range.

Kenny Rogers was the quintessential story-telling song writer, so now I'll wander down memory lane via Youtube, in search of songs like "Coward of the County", "The Gambler", "Ruben James", "Evening Star" and a host of others too many to mention.

Sad to see ya saddle up this last time, Gambler. We'll see ya where the sky meets the desert, and the music goes on forever.

Forgot about Ruben James. Took my folks to see he and Dolly together in concert decades ago. Bravo!

I think it's a story that everyone can relate to, regardless of genre. That's why most people like the song even if they don't like country/western.

Compared to Billy Ray Cyrus "Achy Breaky Heart" shit, which is a song that everyone hates, even if they only like country/western.

In a dream world at least..

Rest in peace Kenny Rogers, and thanks.

I'll get me coat.

Among my favorite country songstresses, Alison Krause and Dolly Parton reworked this classic Kenny Rogers tune, evidently in a concert devoted to the man, while he sat in the audience.
