Kenny Rogers

Weezer, Coachella and now, Kenny Rogers. The concerts-on-a-boat craze continues with the Country Music Cruise, set to sail in 2014 with Vince Gill, Jo Dee Messina, Wade Hayes, Patty Loveless and the "Gambler" himself on board.

Other headliners for the trip, which has no set date as of yet, include Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, Patty Loveless, Ronnie Milsap and Restless Heart.

In addition to the headlining concerts, clubs on the ship will host performances by  Andy Griggs, Ty Herndon, Jamie O’Neal, The Warren Brothers, Bryan White and others. Chuck Mead from BR549 will be playing daily poolside.

The ship will dock in several ports, including Turks and Caicos, Puerto Rico, Saint Maarten and the Bahamas.

"I couldn’t be more excited," Kenny Rogers says in a statement.
