I grew up listening to Kenny Rogers. My mom and dad were fans and there was always music playing in the house, always. I also remember watching him on The Muppet Show. Good times!

Kenny Rogers passed away on March 20th, 2020. He was 81 years old, that’s a long life with some pretty amazing moments I am sure! I mean, he started recording music in the late 1950s! Can you even imagine?


So, this song he recorded called “Goodbye” resurfaced and is now released for the first time ever on the radio by Capitol Records.


Those closest to Kenny wanted to make this track available to all of his fans.

“Goodbye” was written by Lionel Richie, man…that is a blast from the past!

“Goodbye” is one of the last songs that Kenny Rogers ever recorded for Capitol Records.


It had never been released for radio before, but it was featured on a 45-track compilation in 2009 by Time-Life. It was called Kenny Rogers: The First 50 years.

He really says goodbye in that song, I don’t know what was going on in his head when he cut it.
