Kenny Rogers Honored During TV Special – All In For The Gambler

Kenny Rogers Honored During TV Special – All In For The Gambler

The life and legacy of country music legend Kenny Rogers is going to be honored tonight in the star-studded concert special, Kenny Rogers: All In For The Gambler, airing on the CBS TV.

Filmed in Nashville before Kenny’s passing in March of 2020, the concert features on-stage tributes, artists’ anecdotes and inspiring songs performed in front of the music icon himself, as he bid farewell to performing and announced his retirement.

Some of the artists included in the special are, Chris Stapleton

Lady A

Little Big Town

Reba McEntire

and of course Dolly Parton…who was joined on stage by Kenny himself…

Dolly shared, “I am so thrilled to honor the memory of one of my favorite people, Kenny Rogers.”

Reba also shared the story of Kenny offering her a job that she says saved her sanity after the awful accident in 1991 that claimed the lives of her band, “I worked with Kenny in 1991. It was right after the plane crash, and Kenny’s manager called Narvel (Reba husband at the time) and asked, ‘Would Reba be interested in doing Gambler 5?’ And Narvel said, ‘I don’t know.’ I said, ‘Yes, absolutely.’ It probably saved my sanity to get out of Nashville and go to California and work and be absorbed in dialogue and work and get up early, work hard and by the time you’re ready to go to bed, you went to sleep, which wasn’t happening. And so, I went out there, and that’s the first time I met Rex Linn (Reba’s current boyfriend). We worked together on the movie, on The Gambler movie with Kenny Rogers.”

Kenny Rogers: All In For The Gambler, airs tonight, Thursday, Sept. 23 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS TV
