Kenny Rogers & The First Edition - Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town


Really shocked at how sad I am.



I grew up listening to Kenny Rogers' music, and I can't even remember a time when I wasn't a fan of his. I've seen him in concert several times, and he always put on a great show.

He will be missed. R.I.P.

These are some of my favorite Kenny Rogers songs:

Twenty Years Ago



The Vows Go Unbroken



Buy Me A Rose



Through The Years



The Greatest



Morning Desire



Planet Texas



What About Me? (Kenny Rogers with Kim Carnes & James Ingram)



Blaze of Glory

@gbgoodies Thank you for the songs/videos you posted----I was trying to think of a certain song of his I couldn't remember the title and you posted it! Morning Desire is the song and it's one of my favorites of his.

I was surprised by his passing. I knew he was up in age but I didn't know he was ailing or anything. Still, 81 is a long run and I'm glad we had him this long. I was a fan also and saw him in concert either in '84 or '85 and really enjoyed his concert. I even saw his 1982 movie, Six Pack because I was a fan. It was just one of those "charming" little movies that was worth a Saturday matinee, which is when I saw it. Of his songs, I really loved Love Lifted Me, Daytime Friends, She Believes in Me, You Decorated My Life, Through the Years, gbg's aforementioned Morning Desire, and Mary, Did You Know?.

Godspeed, Kenny!

You're welcome. I could have posted a lot more of his songs, but I limited it to only a few of my top favorites.

Six Pack was a fun movie. I think it was Anthony Michael Hall's film debut.

Morning Desire
Terrific guitar work by Stanley Jordan.



Terrific guitar work by Stanley Jordan.
Absolutely! Thanks, @Loner, I didn't know who played the guitar on that track. Love Kenny's vocals but the guitar on that particular song is what keeps me hooked.
