Coward of the County may be one of the most WTF did I just listen to country songs of all time. Norm MacDonald and Adam Carolla giving a rundown of it is comedy gold.

Re: Kenny Rogers dead at 81

Big country fan here (traditional, not contemporary pop). Check out some of Kenny's work with his early band First Edition. Most if not all are out of print but can be tracked down -- they started out as a psych rock band then evolved into sort of an everything band before they broke up in the mid-70s. A favorite of mine:

RIP Kenny

Richard Jewell had a scene with Kenny Rogers singing the Gambler at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics though it was a actor playing him.

No way in hell am I going to watch that!

(Even though I'm kind of curious as to who's catching and who's pitching...)

Not many people can write a hit song about gang rape.

RIP
