My husband Kenny Brent (Anders) was the Love of My LIfe. We were blessed to have shared all the years we had together. Kenny was an extremely gifted and talented musician. He began playing professionally when he was just 14 years old. He was raised in Denver, CO, but spent some of his early years in Warrensburg, MO. He treasured the days when he spent most of his time there with his Grandma Anders. Kenny had such an amazing voice and he was one of the best guitar players you will ever have the pleasure to listen to. He was an amazingly funny guy, his sense of humor and the way he knew his way around the room at his shows had a great and lasting effect on his fans and friends and of course his family. He was so good looking and had let’s just say many of the ladies hanging around him all the time. Kenny like all humans made some choices in his life that he could not get back but he died with peace in his heart, and a great love for his children. Kenny’s music career enabled him to meet a lot of his heroes. He became good friends with Waylon Jennings in Lubbock, TX , Longtime friend he met in Denver, Johnny Paycheck who Kenny played lead guitar for, for 3 years. Faron Young his true hero and him became best friends and Kenny was the last to record 2 duets with Faron before Faron passed in 1996. He played with or did shows with Marty Stuart, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Jerry Lee Lewis and so many more. He was on the Grand Ole Opry Tours with Jeanne Shepard and many years with the “Doodler”, Del Reeves. He always said he had the best times with Del. Kenny was such a gifted songwriter, writing over 500 songs, and he released 17 albums and another is due out in late fall of 2020. He was an Inductee Into the Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame, and was awarded, King of Country Music, Presidents Award for his continuing contribution to Country Music, Songwriter of the Year, Event of the Year with his 50 Years in Country Music Celebration all from the CCMHOF. He received the “King Eagle Award” for Traditional Male Vocalist and has been nominated for the Colorado Music Hall of Fame. There is so much more I could go on about him, but the one thing I know is I will, and many others will miss him very, very much. We will always be blessed with the great and happy memories of our time spent with him. His infectious smile, dancing and listening to his music, laughing at his jokes and quick wit. Kenny would want all of us to Celebrate him in his life, as we know he is with Jesus in Heaven above, a much better place, and we will see him when it’s our time to go. Kenny had 9 children, and many Grandkids and Great Grandkids which I will introduce to you in another section. Also his siblings and family history. I Love You Kenny so very much and miss you, but I know I will see you in heaven one day and you will be waiting for me as you promised.
