After decades of creating the classic country we love, Kenny Rogers is announcing his retirement. He stopped by NBC's TODAY Show to give some good and bad news. Although he's retiring, Rogers is also planning his last worldwide tour.
Rogers isn't ready to say goodbye just yet, and he's got a few cards up his sleeve! He explained,
"It's happily sad or sadly happy," he said of the news. "I'm going to do a big worldwide tour, and it's going to be my last. I'm going to say goodbye at that point; I've done this long enough."
He is also ready to spend more time with his five children, especially his 11-year-old twins Justin and Jordan. "They're very important to me, and I don't see enough of them," said Rogers.
Another bit of good news for fans of the 77-year-old country crooner - he has a new record.
"Once Again It's Christmas" is Rogers' sixth Christmas album and 37th studio album. He has had an amazing career, and although we are sad to see him hang up that cowboy hat, we are excited for this next chapter!
