RIP Kenny. :(

He was one of my favorite country artists. I think I'll need a dose of his songs tonight.

RIP, Gambler. Kenny was more pop-country than pure-country, sort of his generation's Garth Brooks as he had the same massive cross-over success in the pop-radio of the late 1970's and early 80's. Definitely one of the guys who laid the path for the success of further musicians later on. He was one in a million, that's for sure, and one of the last true greats who put out those terrific songs with a story to them. And a good story makes something that much better. Thanks, Kenny. Send Lucille packin' if you meet her on the other side. [B-o]

Oddly enough people seem to think he was just a 70's or 80's icon but if truth be told he was part of the 60's generation and he had at least one psychedelic hit peaking at #5 before he became country/ pop mainstream. I wonder how many people watched the Big Lebowski without knowing who the lead singer of this song was. [B-o]

With all the shit going on right now, you could say that he...
Knew when to fold 'em
Knew when to walk away

Rip Kenny :(

Actually, the line "The best you can hope for is to die in your sleep" is appropriate there. ;)
