Kenny Rogers, the nation artist behind such hits as "The Gambler" and "Woman" over a six-decade profession, has kicked the bucket at 81 years old, his family declared early Saturday. 

"Rogers died calmly at home from normal causes under the consideration of hospice and encompassed by his family," as per an announcement from his administration firm, SKH Music. 

His family designs a little private assistance due to the coronavirus episode, the announcement said. 

Rogers is notable for hits like "The Gambler," "Woman," "Islands in the Stream," "Lucille," "She Believes In Me" and "As the years progressed." 

He and Dolly Parton were visit partners and matched to make some of down home music's most suffering two part harmonies, including "Islands in the Stream," "Love is Strange," "Genuine Love,'' and "You Can't Make Old Friends." 

Rogers declared in 2015 that in the wake of going through over 50 years in the business, he wanted to resign and told NBC's "Today" that he would bid farewell after a last visit. 

"I've done this long enough," the Texas local stated, adding that he needed to invest more energy with his youngsters. 

Rogers had 24 number-one hits over his vocation and was a six-time Country Music Association champ. He won three Grammy grants and was named multiple times. 

The performer was drafted to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013, the equivalent year he was granted the Country Music Association's Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award.
