Kenny Rogers, the 78-year-old country music legend, knows that his health is bringing him down. Rather than gamble with his life, the man who is known as “the Gambler” is calling it quits, and saying his final goodbye to fans everywhere.
“I’ve never been one to sit back until somebody’s tired of me.
I kinda get a sense of when my time to leave is,” he said. For that reason, he is beginning his farewell tour. Rogers’ retirement slate, known as the Final World Tour: The Gambler’s Last Deal, is passing through Salt Lake City on Friday.
“It’s interesting, because there is. And my boys … they asked me, ‘What are you gonna do when you quit singing?’ And I said, ‘Well, I thought I’d come home and spend all my time with you guys.’
And they both put their head down and said, ‘Oh my god.’ Maybe it wasn’t as exciting for them as it was for me!” Rogers joked. “But I’m curious to know what I’m gonna do, ’cause I’ve done this for 60 years now.”
He says he is blessed by the wide diversity of his fans. “I mean, we’ve had 6-year-olds in there.
A lot of these young kids say their parents made ’em listen to my music, and I say, ‘Well, you know that’s child abuse!’ ” he joked. “It’s really given me a great feeling about what I’ve been able to do.
I’ve accomplished much more than I ever dreamed of and much more than I probably deserve. But it’s been a great life for me, and that’s what’s probably gonna be hard to give up, is all the people — they come, they make me feel important and they treat me with such respect.”
Please pray and share for Kenny Rogers as he says goodbye.
