Some sad news today, folks. It would appear that The Gambler has played his last hand. Last night, Grammy-winning country music superstar, Kenny Rogers passed away. He was 81 years old. His Twitter account made the following statement:

“The Rogers family is sad to announce that Kenny Rogers passed away last night at 10:25PM at the age of 81. Rogers passed away peacefully at home from natural causes under the care of hospice and surrounded by his family,” the post read, accompanied by a picture of the Rogers, sporting his signature beard and standing in front of wall adorned with his chart-topping albums.

“The family is planning a small private service at this time out of concern for the national COVID-19 emergency. They look forward to celebrating Kenny’s life publicly with his friends and fans at a later date.”

There's no denying the huge impact Kenny Rogers had on the world of pop culture and I know he will be greatly missed. The time has now come for the legend to finally fold 'em.
