The late Kenny Rogers continues to enjoy his posthumous album

The memory of country music icon Kenny Rogers lives on!

Fans of the beloved singer-songwriter have much to rejoice as his posthumous album has been announced for an imminent release. The music project will be filled with previously unreleased gems and rare tracks, including a collaboration with singer Dolly Parton. This would be the first album to be released in Rogers’ name since he died at the age of 81.

More than three years after Rogers passed away peacefully at his home, fans have begun to prepare for the bittersweet release of “Life Is Like A Song.” Described as “a stunning and emotional song cycle that tells the story of love, life, loss and faith between Rogers and his family,” the June 2 project would feature eight songs.

The songs, pulled from his archives and curated by his wife Wanda Rogers, were recorded between 2008 and 2011. Some of the tracks include a rendition of Lionel Richie’s “Goodbye”, Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight” and the much-anticipated collaboration with Parton, “Tell Me What You Love.”

The project also includes the cover of the 1968 Temptations single “I Wish It Would Rain” and “Love Is a Drug,” a “tenacious, fist-pumping country-rock anthem” written by American Music award-winner and longtime collaborator Kim Carnes.

Although several supporters took to social media to express their joy for the upcoming album afterwards PEOPLE broke the news, a look at Twitter revealed that a handful of fans think of Rogers every day.

For example this internet user uploaded a clip of “The Real West” narrator appearing on stage in a white high collar shirt and maroon suit and writing, “Kenny Rogers has the most satisfying voice in music.”

A second fan divided a link to “The Gambler,” the single he released in 1979 as part of his “The Best Country Album In The World…Ever!” Projekt and added: “Sooo many memories with this song 🥰🤗.” A third fan queried:

“What happens after you finish listening to Kenny Rogers’ The Gambler? You press ‘replay’.”

“Someone called Kenny Rogers average and now my poor soul needs a Band Aid. How dare,” a fourth person tweeted. A fifth Twitter user claims“Kenny Rogers is always a 10th RIP Kenny.”

It is worth noting that the death of the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame inductee was announced by his family in a statement that read:

“The Rogers family is sad to announce that Kenny Rogers passed away at 10:25pm last night at the age of 81.

The statement added that his family is planning a “small private service” due to the restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic. His family later invited fans to visit the ACM Awards nominee’s final resting place in Oakland Cemetery.

While most of the world felt Rogers’ loss through his music, others, like his longtime friend Parton, felt it on every level. The “Jolene” hitmaker opened up about how deep her connection was in the tribute she posted to the “You Decorated My Life” singer on Instagram shortly after his death. In the two-part clip, which she uploaded on March 21, 2020, the “Joyful Noise” actress can be heard saying:

“I know we all know Kenny is in a better place than he is today, but I’m sure that at some point today, if he hasn’t already, he will speak to God and he will ask him to shed some light.” spread onto this darkness that’s going on here. I loved Kenny with all my heart and my heart is broken.”

Parton at one point held up a framed picture of her and her beloved friend and tearfully told him to “fly high.” The explosion further noted that the “Coat of Many Colors” singer praised Rogers for being a “wonderful man and a true friend” in the accompanying caption.

The post, which amassed over 600,000 likes, saw thousands of viewers flood the ‘A Smoky Mountain Christmas’ actress with comments of support. While one person claimed the “Coward of the County” actor looked over her, another begged her not to cry.

Several others shared that listening to Rogers’ songs made them feel on top of the world and appreciated him for his talent.
