Superstar Kenny Rogers is going to be the next name added to the Music City Walk of Fame.

Rogers will receive the 80th star on the walk of fame located on Nashville’s Music Mile.

Inductees are chosen for "their significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville and for contributing to the world through song or other industry collaboration."

Rogers' induction ceremony will be held Oct. 24 at 1 p.m.

The ceremony will happen the day before his all-star farewell concert, titled "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,” said Mayor Megan Barry in a news release. “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 has sold 120 million albums worldwide and topped the charts for nearly six decades. He is one of the top 10 bestselling male solo artists of all time.

Rogers has won many awards for his music throughout the course of his career, including Grammy Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards and Country Music Association Awards.
