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.”

With Detroit News heralding the festival’s atmosphere as “how country feels,” returning fans and new attendees alike, will be able to enjoy the stacked lineup they’ve come to expect including Gary Allan, A Thousand Horses, Big & Rich, Granger Smith feat Earl Dibbles, Jr., Sam Hunt, LoCash, David Nail, Joe Nichols, Jon Pardi and Travis Tritt with more to be announced in the coming weeks.

“What I love about Faster Horses is that the passion and loyalty of the fans is palpable,” said Brian O’Connell President of Live Nation Country Touring. “You can feel it when you’re out in the campgrounds and you see how much time and energy they’ve put into preparing for the festival, and you can feel it when an artist steps out onto the stage.  That passion drives us to come back every year with a lineup that will show our appreciation for all that they’ve done to help us build this festival.  I can’t wait to get back out there for another huge year!”

Selling out in advance of only its third year, Faster Horses is part of Live Nation’s family of premier country music festivals which includes four further destination festivals including Windy City LakeShake-Chicago, IL, FarmBorough-New York, NY, Watershed-The Gorge, WA and Route 91 Harvest-Las Vegas, NV.

“Few musicians have had as profound an impact on music as Kris Kristofferson,” Wortman said. “It’s only fitting that we celebrate his artistry just blocks from where the legend was born with both his friends and contemporaries and those who are continuing his legacy with raw, honest songwriting of their own.”

“A major reason for Kris’ enduring popularity is that he’s always been very honest and open about revealing his inner life,” says producer Don Was, who has worked with Kristofferson for more than 20 years. “In doing that he has created an incredible body of work that has resonated for decades with millions of listeners. It’s always a deeply moving experience to sing and play his songs.”
