The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson
March 16, 2016
Willie Nelson, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley and Eric Church are part of an all-star cast confirmed to perform at a March 16 concert honoring Kris Kristofferson.
Ryan Bingham, Rosanne Cash, Jamey Johnson, Darius Ruckerand Trisha Yearwood are also on tap to perform at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena for The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson. The program, to be taped for worldwide video distribution, will also feature a performance from Kristofferson.
Grammy-winning producer and musician Don Was will serve as music director for the concert. Was has produced several of Kristofferson’s albums, including A Moment Forever, This Old Road, Closer to the Bone and Feeling Mortal.
“A major reason for Kris’ enduring popularity is that he’s always been very honest and open about revealing his inner life,” Was said. “In doing that, he has created an incredible body of work that has resonated for decades with millions of listeners. It’s always a deeply moving experience to sing and play his songs.”
