Kenny Rogers just announced the concert of a lifetime, celebrating his incredible 60-year-long career.

On Oct. 25 in Nashville, Rogers will invite multiple generations of country stars for All In For The Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebration.

Along with The Gambler himself, the show will feature Dolly Parton, Little Big Town, Alison Krauss, The Flaming Lips, Idina Menzel, Jamey Johnson, and Elle King. They’ll be announcing more guest in the coming weeks.

All In For The Gambler will also mark the final performance that Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton do together.

“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 said in a press release.

“It means so much that they would feel compelled to do this for me,” he continues. “Of course, the night would not be the same without Dolly Parton being part of it. We’ve enjoyed a special friendship for decades, and I’ll forever look back fondly on the many collaborations, performances, and laughs we’ve shared as some of the most extraordinary moments of my career. I know it will be a moving experience for us standing on that stage together for one last time.”

Rogers spent 2016 on his final worldwide tour. All In For The Gambler will be a one-night-only event, and it’s sure to be packed with special moment.
