Toby Keith, Hank Williams Jr., Alison Krauss, Martina McBride, Jennifer Nettles, Lee Ann Womack & Jack Ingram Added to Kris Kristofferson Concert

Kris Kristofferson

Music stars Toby Keith, Hank Williams Jr., Martina McBride, Jennifer Nettles, Lee Ann Womack and Jack Ingram have been added to the all-star lineup at The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson on Wednesday, March 16, at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The all-star concert event taping pays tribute to the legendary singer-songwriter and actor.

The new additions to the lineup join previously announced performing artists Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Ryan Bingham, Rosanne Cash, Eric Church, Emmylou Harris, Jamey Johnson, Willie Nelson, Darius Rucker, Trisha Yearwood and Kris Kristofferson. Kristofferson will perform with select music stars throughout the night creating extraordinary musical moments. Additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks.

A new block of tickets in all price ranges, starting at $75, are on sale at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000, at all Ticketmaster locations and at the Bridgestone Arena box office. Citi is the official credit card of The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson.

Kristofferson, a Country Music Hall of Fame member, is considered a true poet who helped modernize the genre with songs such as “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down,” “Help Me Make It Through the Night,” “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Lovin’ Her Was Easier.” These are the songs of heartbreak and despair, of love and loss, of yearning and hope. These are the songs so honest that we adopted them as our own. They are the songs of a life led unlike any other: An All-American athlete, Golden Gloves boxer, Army Ranger, helicopter pilot, singer-songwriter, social activist, humanitarian and movie star.

Keith Wortman is creator and executive producer of the show. Grammy Award-winner Don Was will serve as music director and will lead an all-star band backing the performers at this incomparable concert event taping. The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson will be filmed and recorded for multi-platform distribution throughout traditional media (worldwide broadcast, music and digital).

“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. The addition of these incredible artists to this lineup is a testament to that,” Wortman said. “This is an experience everyone will want to be a part of.”

Dierks Bentley Gets Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit!

Dierks Bentley

Dierks Bentley will be honored with an exhibit at The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Bentley’s exhibit — “Dierks Bentley: Every Mile a Memory, presented by Citi” — will open March 4th and run through Sept. 6th.

“It’s crazy to be considered for something like this,” Bentley said in a statement. “The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is home to the most revered and influential country artists of all time. Just being in the building as a visitor is humbling, but to actually be featured in one of the museum’s exhibits is something I never would have believed if you’d suggested it back when I started chasing this dream down on Broadway. I’m going to have to go down there to see it for myself to really make it sink in.”

Dierks explores the most intimate and sometimes darkest corners of his relationship history with the upcoming release of his eighth studio album Black, set for early 2016. Dierks Bentley ignites country radio with the album’s lead single “Somewhere On A Beach” in correlation with the U.S. leg of his 2016 Somewhere on a Beach Tour beginning on May 12th in Holmdel, N.J. at the PNC Bank Arts Center with Randy Houser along with special guests Cam and Tucker Beathard. Following the commercial success and critical respect from Riser, Bentley’s seven previous studio albums have sold more than five million copies, notched 13 chart-topping singles, earned 13 Grammy nominations, countless CMA, ACM and CMT nominations and membership at the Grand Ole Opry for more than a decade. Additionally, Bentley has been tapped to co-host the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards where he earned two nominations.

The exhibition will include stage wear, guitars, song manuscripts, photos and more from Bentley’s personal collection.

The March 12th museum program, featuring Bentley in conversation and performance, is included with museum admission and free to museum members. The program will be streamed live at countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming. Seating is limited; museum members can reserve tickets via TicketFly.com beginning at 10 a.m., on Feb. 10. Bentley is offering pre-sale tickets to his fan club members, Feb. 10-16. Fans can sign up to join The Congress and become a member of Bentley’s fan club. Citi cardholders will also have access to pre-sale tickets Feb. 10-16. Visit citiprivatepass.com for more information. The general public can reserve tickets beginning at 10 a.m., Feb. 17. For assistance with reservations, please call 615-416-2001 or email reservations@countrymusichalloffame.org.

Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, now a three-day event, has added even more amazing performers to its already stellar music line-up.

The fourth annual festival returns to the sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park in Florida on April 15th, 16th and 17th. Fans will enjoy a one-of-a-kind Tortuga experience at our oceanfront event, including sun, friends, songs, and sand as well as an exclusive viewing deck with a pool for all VIP attendees.

Also joining the headliners in the initial wave of performers announced are: genre-bending multi-platinum star Sam Hunt, “Die A Happy Man” hit-maker Thomas Rhett, country chart-topper Billy Currington, raucous country-rocker Kip Moore, legendary rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd, funk and soul fusion band Michael Franti & Spearhead, powerhouse vocalist Randy Houser, “Freaks Like Me” crooner Joe Nichols, “Buy Me A Boat” dynamic live performer Chris Janson, “Smoke” supergroup A Thousand Horses, Florida native southern rock swamp band JJ Grey & Mofro, “Ex’s and Oh’s” blues pop-sensation Elle King, iHeartRadio personality Bobby Bones and his comedy band the Raging Idiots, “Little Bit Of You” singer Chase Bryant, country quintet Old Dominion and “Burning House” songbird Cam. Tortuga brings the best emerging artists as well and this year is no exception with: LANco, Waterloo Revival, Native Run, Walker County, Tucker Beathard, Old Southern Moonshine Revival, Ryan Hurd, Courtney Cole, and Drew Baldridge.

Regular priced festival tickets are now available, with three-day General Admission at $199 and VIP at $899. Complete festival pricing can also now be found at www.tortugamusicfestival.com.
