Chattanooga native James Rogers plans to retire from his regular show at Dollywood after this season, according to an article in the Sevierville Mountain Press.
Rogers has been performing and writing music for four decades.
He said on his website, "It has been a wonderful trip and dream come true. From 1994-1998, you could find me on the eastern corner of Tennessee (Pigeon Forge) performing at the Music Mansion (2000 seat theater). We really made lots of friends there. We had a huge #1 productions show, for five years that featured myself and some of the most talented people with whom I have ever had the pleasure of working.
"At the present time I am doing, (for the most part) my "one man show" again. From mid-May until the end of October, you can find me at Dollywood."
The article notes that this Saturday, he will again be a key part of the Smoky Mountain Alzheimer’s Tennessee Walk, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary at Pigeon Forge High School.
He wrote the walk's theme song, "Find the Way" in honor of his father, who died from Alzheimer’s disease.
