It has been a year since music legend Kenny Rogers passed away, and her family made sure to pay tribute to him through an Instagram post.


Along with team KR, the Rogers family shared a statement on Instagram during the country music legend's first death anniversary. While they spoke about the difficulty of losing Rogers, they also included his fans in the message by thanking them for their support.

"As you can imagine, some days are better than others, so we wholeheartedly thank you for your thoughts, prayers and support over the last year. It means so much to us."


According to the Rogers family, fans have been sending them fond memories of the late star, including touching messages that have brought tears to their eyes and have made them laugh during difficult times.

Although it's been a year, they noted that they would never stop missing Rogers, regardless of what day it was. Instead of sulking, they hope to celebrate the person he was and the legacy he built.

They concluded the heartwarming message by saying that they are doing well, knowing that the country crooner will live on through his music and fans.

The "Islands in the Stream" singer passed away at age 81 in March 2020. He passed away peacefully from natural causes and was surrounded by family at the time.


Although he is known as an award-winning singer and songwriter, he takes pride in his children the most. He had five kids, Carole, Kenny Jr., Chris, and twins, Justin and Jordan. Despite being in demand for shows and tours, Rogers was never afraid to say that his career mattered second to him.


"I hope my fans understand that I'm a father first and a singer second."


In 2013, he worried about how much longer he had on Earth, and he didn't want to miss out on some parts of his youngest sons' lives. He added that he felt sad he wasn't around for his older children and wanted to do better for the twins.

Recently, Lionel Richie paid tribute to Rogers at the 2021 Grammy Awards. He sang the country star's hit song "Lady" during the ceremony's "in memoriam" segment. After finishing the song he wrote for Rogers, he shared that he missed his friend a lot.
