Music icon Kenny Rogers is getting a star on the Music City Walk of Fame, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp announced.
Officials said Rogers will be inducted into the walk of fame on October 24 at 1 p.m.
The ceremony was scheduled one day in advance of the all-star “All In For The Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebration” at Bridgestone Arena.
“Kenny Rogers is one of the best storytellers in country music history, with one of the sweetest and most soulful voices,” Mayor Megan Barry said. “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, who has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, will receive the 80th star on the Music City Walk of Fame.
