This comes as the star paid tribute to the late Kenny Rogers on Monday with a solo acoustic version of ‘Islands in the Stream,’ the latter’s 1983 hit with Dolly Parton.
To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Peck’s debut studio album ‘Pony’, the masked artist performed the solo acoustic rendition with a live-streamed at-home concert.
In the 71-minute live-stream video, Peck appears in his living room with a cowboy painting on the wall as it was covered with string lights.
Speaking of Rogers, Peck said during the virtual performance: “This is one of my all-time favorite country duets.”
Rogers passed away three days prior (March 20) from natural causes, his family confirmed in a statement.
“The Rogers family is sad to announce that Kenny Rogers passed away last night at 10:25PM at the age of 81,” the statement began. “Rogers passed away peacefully at home from natural causes under the care of hospice and surrounded by his family.”
Rogers had a number of hits across the 1970s and ’80s, including ‘The Gambler’, ‘Lady’, ‘Through The Years’, ‘Lucille’ and more. He’s a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, a three-time Grammy winner, and had 24 number-one songs across his near-60-year career.
