The contract between the Wynn Las Vegas and country music star Garth Brooks has neared its end date, concluding a 3-year agreement.

With just six more dates this fall, the show will conclude Nov. 16-17.

Brooks signed onto the gig in 2009 despite his retirement. In addition to a lucrative contract, Steve Wynn gave Brooks a jet.

Explaining his upcoming farewell to Las Vegas, the 50-year-old singer said he "thoroughly enjoyed" performing and called Wynn "the easiest and best boss I have ever worked for."

Brooks added that he intends to film the 1-man show sometime next summer.

On Twitter, many of Brook's dedicated fans posted about their favorite artist as he wraps up his run in Vegas.

"Garth Brooks on the radio this morning? #ILikeit," wrote Kaylyn.

Julie posted, "Im into a lil of all music, loved country back in the 90s –days of Garth Brooks."

"Confession Time: I was raised on country music and still love Garth Brooks," wrote Matthew.

Many fans are hoping Brooks will go on tour again following his departure from Las Vegas.

The "Where Your Road Leads" singer will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tenn. on Oct. 21. Legendary session player Hargus "Pig" Robbins and country music singer Connie Smith will join Brooks.

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Brooks learned to play the guitar and banjo at a young age. After graduating with a degree in advertising from Oklahoma State University, the singer began singing and playing guitar in Oklahoma clubs and bars when he decided he wanted to pursue a career in music.

Brooks has enjoyed one of the most prominent careers in popular music history and has broken records, including becoming the best-selling albums artist in the U.S. in 1991.

Some of the Grammy Award-winner's hit songs include "Friends in Low Places," "The Thunder Rolls," "To Make You Feel My Love," and "Don't Blink," among many more.
