Polished Edge: Kris Kristofferson joins ‘Troubadour, TX’ series
NASHVILLE -- Legendary singer, songwriter, and actor Kris Kristofferson will join the television series, “Troubadour, TX,” for its third season, which begins airing in late September.
Kristofferson will appear weekly as a segment host for the award-winning, 22-episode series. 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. He will also star in a one-hour music special, presented by “Troubadour, TX.”
“Troubadour, TX” is a weekly television series that documents the lives of singers and songwriters, which is something Kristofferson knows a lot about. Kristofferson, who is currently touring after releasing his latest album, “Feeling Mortal,” is considered by many as one of the most iconic Troubadours of all time.
Kristofferson, originally from Brownsville, Texas, has had an extraordinary music career, having been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2004 and winning a Grammy award early in his career. He’s perhaps best known for such hits as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “For the Good Times,” “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down,” “Why Me Lord,” and “Help Me Make it Through the Night.” He is the sole writer for most of his songs but has collaborated throughout the years with various Nashville music greats, including best friends Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Janis Joplin, and many others.
Kristofferson has also had a distinguished acting career, starring in nearly 100 films, including “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid,” “A Star is Born,” “Planet of the Apes,” “Blade,” and “Joyful Noise.”
The one-hour music special, “Troubadour, TX presents an evening with Kris Kristofferson,” will air this fall nationwide on networks carrying the “Troubadour, TX” series.
