Kenny Rogers is the latest artist to be inducted into Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame. He’ll be honored with a ceremony on Oct. 24, one day before a farewell concert is hosted in his honor at Bridgestone Arena, also in Nashville.

“Kenny Rogers is one of the best storytellers in country music history, with one of the sweetest and most soulful voices,” Mayor Megan Barry says. “I’m so glad he’ll be able to join all the other amazing artists on the Music City Walk of Fame before he retires after nearly 60 years of making beautiful music.”

Rogers’ name will be emblazoned on the Walk’s 80th star. He’ll be recognized for his contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Music City. The Music City Walk of Fame was created in 2006 on Nashville’s Music Mile, which connects downtown to Music Row.

On Oct. 25, Rogers will celebrate his 60-year career with a star-studded farewell concert, All in for the Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebration. The singer will perform with longtime friend Dolly Parton and be joined by other acts, including the Flaming Lips, Jamey Johnson, Elle King, Alison Krauss, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Idina Menzel, Reba McEntire, Chris Stapleton and Wynonna Judd.

“As I’m bringing this chapter of my career to a close, this will be an unforgettable way to celebrate with my talented friends, who I’m so grateful to have crossed paths with,” Rogers says.
