My mom was a HUGE Kenny Rogers fan. I grew up listening to him constantly, and as a kid he was probably the only country artist I ever really knew.
My grandmother was also a huge fan and thought he was a handsome devil. She had an 8x10 of him that she'd playfully kiss when she walked by. The story goes that one day my little brother (who was maybe 4 or 5 at the time) was in the grocery store with her and there was a magazine with Kenny Rogers on the front. Upon seeing it, he loudly shouted, "Hey grandma, there's that man you kiss all the time!!!"
She used to tell that story all the time and laugh her head off.
So yeah, I know he got a little weird in his later days with the plastic surgery and all, but I have nothing but good memories of ol' Kenny.
