…And somewhere in the darkness, the Gambler, he broke even.”
Rogers sang the lyrics himself in his famous song, THE GAMBLER.
Country music icon Kenny Rogers has died at the age of 81. Rogers’ music career spanned six decades, and included a string of hits on both the pop and country charts from the late 60s to the mid 80s. His best known song is probably “The Gambler,” which spawned a series of TV movies starring Rogers.
Friday night, Rogers passed away peacefully at his home in Georgia from natural causes and surrounded by family.
