More stars are headed to Connecticut this weekend to join Kenny Rogers for a very special show at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket on Saturday.

Tim McGraw, Chris Isaak, Darius Rucker and Billy Currington have all now signed on to perform at the show, which is being filmed for a future television special called “Kenny Rogers: The First 50 Years”. They’ll join an impressive cast of special guests that aleady includes Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Wynonna, Alison Krauss, Smokey Robinson, Oak Ridge Boys, Sheena Easton and Billy Dean.

Tickets for the show are still available through the venue’s box office and range in price from $100 to $225. The show will be recorded in HD and 3D for a future DVD release and television special to air at a later date this year.

“When this was first proposed to me as a 50-year celebration, something about that sounded final, and I didn’t want that, so I suggested we call it ‘The First 50 Years,’” Rogers said in a press release. “I will tell you this, the first 50 years TV show is gonna be awesome – the next 50 years TV show is gonna be a bitch.”
