This week’s instalment of Music Monday is The Gambler by Kenny Rogers from his 1978 album, The Gambler. The Uncle Kracker version is from a 2011 performance for 98.7 KUPL “The Bull” in Portland, Oregon.

I don’t really know what put this song in my head, but there it was and I really like the story. I went looking for some covers and when I found the Uncle Kracker version, I just couldn’t pass it up.
