    LOL — As soon as I saw your title for this fab pick, I thought of “Lucille”!!! Love, love, love Kenny Rogers and his music — saw him once in concert many years ago — it is still one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen! :D

    What was the name of the song that he had on the charts while he was a “pop” singer with Kenny Rogers and the First (?) Addition? Not sure of the groups name any more.
    Too early for my old brain to be functioning.

    When you really need to know….Google it! ;) Here is what I found regarding Peggy’s question:

    “Kenny joined the “New Christy Minstrels” in the mid-1960s, then splintered off with others in the popular group to form “The First Edition”. Their first big soft-rock hit, “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town” hit #6 on the US charts, while later successes included “Something’s Burning”, “Just Dropped In”, “Tell It All Brother”, and “Reuben James”. The husky-framed singer’s ingratiating personality and sensual gravel tones soon took center stage and the group eventually renamed themselves “Kenny Rogers and the First Edition”.”

    I never think to do that! I was thinking of “Just Dropped In”. Thanks, Lynn! To this day, my Sister-in-law refuses to believe that he was a “pop” singer. She is a huge fan of his.

    I remember listening to the new Christy Minstrels because my parents liked them! Lucille is one of the songs we like to plant in each other’s heads as earworms where I work. We can’t listen to music so we “play” our own. and the beads are goegeous. they bring out Kenny’s rich, warm voice!
