Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, two country music stars who once made beautiful music together, plan to do it one more time. Reuters reports that the singers will reunite for a concert in Nashville celebrating Rogers’ 60-year career.
“Rogers, 78, who is on the final stage of his world farewell tour, said on Tuesday he will be joined by Little Big Town, Alison Krauss, the Flaming Lips and other guests for the Oct. 25 celebration,” the story reports. “Rogers and Parton, who had a worldwide hit with ‘Islands in the Stream’ in 1983, have been friends for more than 30 years. Rogers said the concert would prove ‘a moving experience for us standing on that stage together for one last time.'”
Tickets for the show, dubbed “All In For The Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebration,” go on sale on Friday.
Rogers announced in 2015 that he was retiring, and later embarked on his worldwide farewell tour. The singer is known for a string of hit songs including “The Gambler,” “Lucille” and “Coward of the County,” along with his time early in his career with the First Edition, which produced the classics “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In),” “But You Know I Love You,” “Something’s Burning” and “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town.”
