    I'm so sorry to hear this! I have always loved Kenny Rogers' music, ever since I was a kid. His Greatest Hits was one of the first CDs I ever bought, way back in the 90s.

    We all know the huge role he played in getting Don's career started. They even did a song together called "Calling Me."

    I loved "The Gambler" but an underrated song of Kenny's that I always loved was one I played at my parent's 50th anniversary:





    RIP Kenny!

    I love Calling Me.

    I started to like Through the Years when the Osmonds played it in their show.

    Also. I was going on IHeart Radio to listen to some of his songs and I saw he recorded Elvira with the First Edition. A song that would become the Oak Ridge Boys signature. Then finding a few years ago he recorded We've Got Tonight with Sheena Easton.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    I was so sad to hear of Kenny's passing Saturday. I've always loved his music. RIP Kenny.

    I'm also glad he gave Don and his band Shiloh a chance and helped them get started. Sounds like he was revered by Don, too. He had very nice words to say about him.

    My favorite song of his was Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town with his band, the First Edition.

    Just found this "The Untold Truth about KR" and Don, Glenn and the Eagles are featured at about the 1:18 mark.
