Kenny Rogers has been hospitalized, but never fear: The singer “can assure everyone he plans on sticking around through the years to come,” his team said Friday.

"Kenny was recently admitted to a local Georgia hospital and treated for dehydration," the tweeted statement said. "He will remain there to complete some physical therapy to get his strength back prior to discharge.”

The statement comes in response to “wild misinformation and speculation from several media outlets,” Rogers’ team said. No information was provided as to the cause of the dehydration.

The singer, 80, also thanked fans for their concern and well wishes.

In April 2018, Rogers canceled the final eight performances in his farewell tour on doctors’ orders. The summer before that, he told Rolling Stone that he had made the decision to retire because his mobility had “gotten kind of strange” and he didn’t like to go on stage and have to apologize.
