Kris Kristofferson Signs on for ‘Troubadour, TX’ Television Show
Kris Kristofferson will be coming to television in the fall. The legendary singer-songwriter and actor has signed on for the third season of 'Troubadour, TX,' which will begin airing later this year.
The series follows a diverse collection of singer-songwriters on their various journeys in trying to make a go of their musical dreams, capturing them both onstage and in their private lives. Filmed mostly in Kristofferson's home state of Texas, the docu-reality show has won 17 Telly awards.
Kristofferson will serve as a weekly segment host for the 22-episode season. According to a press release, "He will share personal stories of his life as a singer-songwriter, the influence of Texas music and artists, and offer his unique perspective into the challenging journey of artists."
The Grammy-winning country legend, whose songs include 'Me and Bobby McGee,' 'For the Good Times,' 'Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down,' 'Why Me Lord' and 'Help Me Make It Through the Night,' will also appear in a one-hour music special, 'Troubadour, TX Presents an Evening With Kris Kristofferson.' That special will air nationwide this fall on networks carrying the 'Troubadour, TX' series.
The third season of 'Troubadour, TX' begins airing in late September. For more information about dates, times and stations, click here.
