LATE NIGHT....KENNY ROGERS

I know, your shocked right? Can't be helped. His music reminds me of my youth at home. My mother loves country music. I still do like some country stars, but the older country I liked better. What can I say, I'm well rounded when it comes to music. This was my favorite Kenny Rodgers ditty.

And then there is this gem.
Two greats together.

  1. I think a lot of us grew up with Kenny Rogers. Even my family did. I also loved Six Pack and The Gambler movies. I never got to try one of his broiler restaurants, though.

    RIP Kenny.

  2. The chemistry of these 2 singers is inevitable, a huge fan of Kenny and Dolly. I too grow up listening to their music. Ruby is a good.

  3. I too admit to being a Kenny fan. Song bring back memories. I love Kenny's face when he hears Dolly.

  4. His was an unassuming voice of reassurance which, it seemed, would have been around forever - and now he's gone at just a time when we need the likes of him the most. Sad indeed.

    1. unassuming voice of reassurance. I think you hit upon why so many loved him. He was here to just sing, no flash, just sing.

  5. I like kenny & dolly's "islands in the stream". then he ruined himself with plastic surgery. I confess to liking 80s-90s country music.

  6. I must admit I find his voice very pleasing, pure, and sexy, and I DID like the First Edition. And in harmony with Dolly Parton, powerful. SHE gives me the chills when she sings. What a voice! What a presence! And what a writer!

    1. Not too many classic old country singers left anymore. Much like Hollywood I surmise.

  7. Yep, very nostalgic. Really does remind me of being a kid.

  9. He sure had an incredible career, didn't he? 24 No.1 hits, they said on TV. I always liked him too.

  11. When that mic slips thru his fingers and his smile radiates....that smirky smile... knowing who's coming and what she's about...That power house voice and witty charm makes any man weak. Ohhhh boy that Dolly....she holds her ground and throws some digs and you can't help but love her. Those two together were magic. I too confess to liking his music. I was real sad when I heard this, not even knowing him.

  12. My parents had the country music station on all the time. Yes Kenny and especially Kenny and Dolly remind me of being a little child. Back in the day when Kenny Rogers looked exactly like Kenny Rogers.

    1. I did like his music, and agree, what was with the plastic surgery? That is very rare for country male singers.

  13. Yes, I will say you are well rounded when it comes to music as we have seen from this week. And that is a good quality my friend.

    Back when singers sounded the same as the studio version. Kenny.. and Dolly are legends and always be my favorite country duo.

  14. The silver fox with the golden voice. He will be missed. He and Dolly worked well together.

    This music made me feel very deeply in 1969 as a 13 year old boy. Each time I've heard this haunting story Ruby,since, it brings back the same deep sadness and a certain pride for the bravery and courage of our servicemen and servicewomen.
    As a veteran I will always keep this song in a special place

  16. Ruby was one of my favorites

  17. "I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in." I loved Kenny Rogers and the First Edition long before he went country. Had a major crush when I was a young teen. There was something about that beard and growly deep voice that set my new found hormones aflutter. Something's Burning is still a favorite. I preferred his duets with Dottie West over the one's with Dolly Parton. Song choice is key, and I like the songs he did with Dottie better than the ones he did with Dolly.

  20. I think he was a staple on every bar's jukebox.
    His duet with Dolly is iconic.
    He will be missed.

    XOXO
