‘Troubadour, TX’ to Air ‘An Evening with Kris Kristofferson’
This fall, ‘Troubadour, TX,’ the docu-reality show that follows singer-songwriters on their journeys as musicians, will air a one-hour musical special, ‘An Evening with Kris Kristofferson.’
The special will feature a live-to-tape performance of Kristofferson singing some of his legendary tunes like ‘Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down,’ ‘Me and Bobby McGee,’ ‘Help Me Make It Through the Night,’ and ‘Why Me Lord.’
According to a press release, the special also includes “discussions with the renaissance man about his life and career — dispelling some myths that have been floating around for decades,” as well as “a behind-the-scenes look at Kristofferson’s performance at Red Rocks in Denver with fellow Texas Troubadour, Lyle Lovett.”
The special will air on the same stations that carry ‘Troubadour, TX,’ beginning in November and December.
“Kris Kristofferson is the quintessential Troubadour,” says Executive Producer Carl Kornmeyer. “This television special presents the heart of a genuine musical poet and reveals the essence of the series, ‘Troubadour, TX.’ It’s all about the music, the passion, the journey.”
Kristofferson, who is a Texas native, will also serve as a segment host for the season’s 22 episodes.
The third season of ‘Troubadour, TX’ begins airing in late September. For more information about dates, times and stations, click here.
