Kenny Rogers has canceled his scheduled weekend concerts due to illness.

The 75-year-old country legend was slated to perform with the Nashville Symphony at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Friday, Feb. 14 and Sat., Feb. 15 in a special Valentine’s Day program. In a press release Thursday (Feb. 13), the symphony announced that Rogers had been forced to change those plans due to an undisclosed illness.

The Valentine’s Day concerts will continue, however, with Wynonna Judd stepping up to fill in for Rogers for the two dates. The five-time Grammy winner will perform a selection of her signature hits, along with a handful of romantic standards.

Fans who have already purchased tickets can use those tickets to attend Judd’s performances this weekend. Ticket holders also have the option of exchanging their tickets for an upcoming Bank of America Pops Series or Aegis Sciences Classical Series concert.

Tickets to Wynonna Judd with the Nashville Symphony are available at, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center box office, or by phone at (615) 687-6400.

The staff of The Boot extend our well wishes to Kenny Rogers for a speedy recovery.
