8 p.m. El Dorado Municipal Auditorium. $30-$100.

Y'all, The Gambler himself, Kenny Rogers, will be coming to Arkansas this weekend, Saturday night at El Dorado Municipal Auditorium, to be all specific about it.

Rogers is fresh off of releasing a new album, "You Can't Make Old Friends," and being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. And he's set to receive this week the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award at the CMAs. Oh, and before you start getting all snarky about the work he had done a few years ago, just know that yes, he knows. He told Anderson Cooper that "it was all for the sake of what I thought was looking better, and I'm not sure what I would look like if I hadn't done it so I'm happy."

So just, you know, let's all concentrate on the music, which is the thing that will live on forever anyways, right?

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
