Toby Keith, Martina McBride and More Join Kris Kristofferson Tribute Lineup
It’s only fitting that a concert paying tribute to country music legend Kris Kristofferson would showcase the talents of some the biggest stars in the genre. Even more country favorites have been added to the upcoming show’s lineup, including Toby Keith and Martina McBride.
In addition to Keith and McBride, Hank Williams Jr., Jennifer Nettles, Lee Ann Womack and Jack Ingram are all new additions to The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson. They join Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Ryan Bingham, Rosanne Cash, Eric Church, Emmylou Harris, Jamey Johnson, Willie Nelson, Darius Rucker and Trisha Yearwood in the concert’s lineup.
“Kris and his songs mean everything to music artists and fans alike. They have inspired us to remain true to ourselves in every possible way,” says Keith Wortman, creator and executive producer of the show. “The addition of these incredible artists to this lineup is a testament to that. This is an experience everyone will want to be a part of.”
The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson is scheduled to take place on March 16 at Music City’s Bridgestone Arena; the show will be filmed for multi-platform distribution. Throughout the evening, Kristofferson will perform with select stars — and even more performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
