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.”

Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation Celebrates “Mutts Across America”

Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation had a great fundraising year in 2015 and with your help is able to continue their Mutts Across America: 50 States/50 Shelters initiative.  A total of $175,000 was distributed to shelters in each of the 50 states in January this year, with the minimum donation to an individual shelter being $3000.

Miranda Lambert said, “When an animal finds a forever home, it’s not just life-changing for the animal, but for the family that gets to receive the unconditional love that animals give.  It means so much to me to be a part of that process.”

The MuttNation Foundation board worked diligently to find the most deserving shelters in each of the 50 states. The surprised recipients acknowledged the donations across MuttNation’s social platforms.  The Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue, responded to the donation, “To say I was shocked to receive your amazingly generous and kind donation would be an understatement!”  The Bella Vista Animal Shelter told MuttNation Foundation, “As the recipient for the state of Arkansas we are deeply humbled and enormously grateful for your support!  Our ‘cold noses and warm hearts’ give the MuttNation Foundation their sincere thanks.” And Animal Rescue Rhode Island thanked MNF for recognizing their, “exemplary work in the fight to end animals’ suffering and accelerate shelter pet adoptions.”

A lot of different criteria play a role in the decision to support these selected shelters, such as high adoption per intake rate, volunteerism, fiscal responsibility, advocating spay and neuter programs and a solid presence in their community.

MNF co-founder Bev Lambert added, “We feel so privileged to be able to continue supporting these shelters that truly stand out.  We salute all of the individuals who follow their passion to help animals and defend those who cannot defend themselves.”

MNF continues to support their partners in animal rescue at The American Humane Association and Northshore Animal League as well as Miranda’s home town shelter, Pet Fur People in East Texas.  A complete list of the shelters that received donations is available at MuttNationFoundation.  MNF does not solicit grant applications.
