Kris Kristofferson Adds Hosting Duties to Résumé

Texas Troubadour Goes to Troubadour, TX.

The already popular television series Troubadour, TX is about to get even bigger with Country Music Hall of Famer Kris Kristofferson signing on as the show’s new segment host.

Kris, who hails from Brownsville, Texas, will share his own insight and stories on the challenges and struggles that face singers and songwriters regardless of where they stand on the ladder of success. And he may know a thing or two about the subject. In his career, he has penned such monster hits as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down,” “For the Good Times” and “Help Me Make It Through the Night,” but he got his start sweeping floors at Columbia Studios in Nashville. Fortunately, things worked out for Kris, who just released his 28th album, Feeling Mortal.

In addition to the television series, Kris will star in a one-hour music special presented by Troubadour, TX.

Troubadour, TX is a weekly series that follows the lives of Texas singers and songwriters like Wade Bowen, Zane Williams, Roger Creager, Matt Caldwell, Josh Grider and sister trio Michaelis as they chase their dreams of a career in music. The series' third season begins airing in September.
