Country music legend, multi-GRAMMY® Award winner, prolific songwriter, and actor Kris Kristofferson returns to the Bilheimer Capitol Theatre with very special guest, Robert Earl Keen.
Kristofferson is famed as a solo artist and as part of the country supergroup The Highwaymen, which also included Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson. His songs have been covered by Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Johnny Cash and many others. He has worked as an actor in A Star Is Born, Lone Star, and the Blade trilogy. In 1977, he won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in A Star Is Born and in 2014 was awarded the GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Award. His catalog of music includes the hit songs “Help Me Make It through the Night”, “Me and Bobby McGee”, “Sunday Mornin’ Coming Down”, “Loving Her Was Easier than Anything I’ll Ever Do Again” and “The Taker”.
For Texas Country Music Icon Robert Earl Keen, “The Road Goes on Forever”….and it’s not always easy to sum up a career – let alone a life’s ambition – so succinctly, but those five words from Keen’s calling-card anthem just about do it. Keen struck an unusual balance between sensitive story-portraits such as “Corpus Christi Bay” and raucous barroom fun like “That Buckin’ Song”. He is part of the second generation of maverick country artists, mixing Texas twang, folk wit, and rock muscle. Although his music spans many different styles, from folk, country, and bluegrass to rock, he is most commonly affiliated with the Americana and Alternative country movements.
