Dolly Parton Pays Tribute to Late Singing Partner Kenny Rogers

Dolly Parton has shared a tribute to the late Kenny Rogers, who was her singing partner for many years. He passed away from natural causes.

The country singer posted a one-minute video message on her Twitter account along with this message: “You never know how much you love somebody until they’re gone. I’ve had so many wonderful years and wonderful times with my friend Kenny, but above all the music and the success I loved him as a wonderful man and a true friend.”

Dolly said that she learned about Kenny‘s death while watching the news.

In the video, Dolly said, “I know that we all know that Kenny is in a better place than we are today and I’m pretty sure that he’s going to be talking to God sometime today… and he’s going to be asking him to spread some light on a bunch of this darkness. I loved Kenny with all my heart. My heart’s broken. A big ol’ chunk of it has gone with him today.”

“I think I can speak for all of his family, his friends, and fans when I say that I will always love you,” she added. While tearing up, she added, “God bless you Kenny, fly high straight into the arms of God. To the rest of you, keep the faith.”
