Remember When Chris Stapleton Performed “The Gambler” At The Kenny Rogers Tribute Concert?

Back in 2017, fans packed Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena for All In For The Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebrationan all-star tribute concert for the great Kenny Rogers.

The evening featured performances from Little Big Town, Reba, Jamey Johnson, and of course Dolly Parton along with Kenny himself, but it was Chris Stapleton that was called upon to perform Rogers’ iconic hit, “The Gambler.”

And needless to say, he CRUSHED it.

My apologies on the video however. It was filmed up in the rafters and in portrait (landscape people, landscape!) but hey, it’s the best we got.

RIP Kenny.

You were, you are, and you’ll always be… a country music legend.
