Our hearts go out to the friends and family of Bob Kinglsey, longtime host of the Bob Kingsley's Country Top 40.

The news broke this morning that the country music legend passed away, just 8 days after his announcment that he was fighting bladder cancer. 

On October 9th, he released this statement: 
""While there is no doubt that the immediate road ahead will push me and challenge my resolve, I want you to know I am blessed to be working with the very best in the medical profession, and they have a plan to deal with this awful disease, the faith you have placed in me is something I treasure, and that support has allowed me to do what I love in this wonderful industry for 60 years. I have no intention of stopping anytime soon, but for a moment, I need to ask for your patience as I step away from the mic and focus on my treatment."

According to sources, a celebration of life will be held for Kingsley at the County Music Hall of Fame in Nashville on November 14th.
