Long-time friend Bob Morrison wrote the Grammy-winning Kenny Rogers song “You Decorated My Life.” He was ASCAP’s Country Songwriter of the Year in 1978, 1980, 1981, and 1982, and inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2016. Here’s an email exchange on the passing of Kenny Rogers.
It was great to hear from you. I hope you and yours are doing ok under the circumstances. Kenny was a genius at changing with the times musically. He had a very long career. Longer than most. And living 81 years with the wear and tear of the music business and the road is pretty damn good. I’m sure glad there was a Kenny. He made a difference in a lot of songwriters lives. And I’m proud to be one of them. Keep yourself safe. BM
