‘Just Dropped In’: Music Icon Kenny Rogers Dead at 81

WASHINGTON – American country music singer Kenny Rogers passed away overnight at the age of 81, according to the artist’s family on Saturday.

In a successful career spanning six decades, Rogers won three Grammy Awards and 18 American Music Awards, while his most notable hits include “The Gambler” and “Just Dropped In,” among many others.

“The Rogers family is sad to announce that Kenny Rogers passed away last night at 10:25 pm at the age of 81. Rogers passed away peacefully at home from natural causes under the care of hospice and surrounded by his family,” read a statement from his management firm, SKH Music.

The statement underlined Rogers’ long career during which he left an “indelible mark” on American music as well as on millions of people around the world.

Rogers left behind a legacy of 24 chart-toppers including “The Gambler,” “Lady,” “Islands In The Stream,” “Lucille,” “She Believes In Me” and “Through the Years.”

He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and was also awarded the CMA Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013, and was the CMT Artist of a Lifetime Award honoree in 2015, among several other recognitions.

The Rogers family said they would only hold a small private ceremony out of concern about the coronavirus pandemic but hoped to celebrate “Kenny’s life publicly with his friends and fans at a later date.”

The country music singer’s last concert was held on Oct. 25 in Nashville, Tennessee, United States, where he shared the stage with stars such as Dolly Parton in a tribute to his artistic legacy.

The concert concluded a farewell tour of the United States with a total of 18 concerts in which he shared the stage with other pop and country music artists, such as Little Big Town, Jamey Johnson, Elle King, and Alison Krauss.
