ABOUT THE SHOW
On Wednesday, March 16, an extraordinary collection of music stars came together at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., for the all-star concert event taping of a lifetime, The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson. This one -night-only concert event taping, produced by Blackbird Presents, which brought together fans, friends, and music icons to honor the songs of Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award-winning singer-songwriter and actor Kris Kristofferson.
Kristofferson, a Country Music Hall of Fame member, is considered a true poet who helped modernize the genre with songs like, “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down,” “Help Me Make It Through the Night,” “Me & Bobby McGee,” and “If Loving 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.
