A family representative said he "died peacefully at home from natural causes".
Kenny Rogers topped pop and country charts during the 1970s and 1980s, and won three Grammy awards.
Known for ballads including The Gambler, Lucille and Coward Of The County, his career spanned more than six decades.
He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013 and, that same year, received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Country Music Association.
A keen businessman, Rogers also led several ventures over the years, mainly in property and the restaurant sector.
