        interesting trivia from his Wiki page: married 5 times, with each of the marriages lasting longer than the one that preceded it!

          Not to be flip, but I guess he DID know when to fold 'em.

            He had a great voice, but goodness he didnt write any of his hits, hard to consider him a great country artist. Not even close.

              So, you feel compelled to put him down on your list, on the day he passes away ? Wow !

                by this rubric there has never been a great opera singer.... Enrico Caruso would be crushed

                    Plácido Domingo Says He Has the Coronavirus

                    “I beg everyone to be extremely careful,” the opera singer said in a Facebook post on Sunday after developing a fever and cough and testing positive for the virus.

                      Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley are just a couple of rather notable popular singers not known for songwriting.

                        An elite opera singer's voice compared to Kenny Rogers, . well, .. I'm speechless.

                          I'm sure he was a great guy , he seemed to have a heart of gold.

                            Note that there is an obvious converse, here. Living a short drive from Nashville, it is not uncommon to hear guys playing at local wineries (to crowds of a dozen or so). Frequently they mention they are playing a song they wrote a while back, and start singing a Country staple.
