Country music star Kenny Rogers died peacefully in his home at the age of 81. Rogers died of natural causes while in hospice care.
Rogers was best known for the smash hit The Gambler – which became an on and off screen persona of his. The song was a crossover song that is a favorite among card players across the globe. He also had hits like Lady, Lucille, and Islands In The Stream.
Rogers family has a private memorial planned, with a public memorial at a later date.
