The Jewel on Joachim is bringing a country music icon to its stage. Kris Kristofferson is one of the world’s most prolific and beloved singer/songwriters.
In 1965, Kristofferson launched his musical career in Nashville. From there, he went on to write a seemingly endless list of songs that include “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” and “Help Me Make It Through the Night.” He also joined Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings in the country music supergroup The Highwaymen.
More than 50 years have passed since Kristofferson first journeyed to Music City, and his latest album serves as a reflection of his career.
Recorded at Austin’s Cedar Creek Recording, “The Cedar Creek Sessions” was released in conjunction with Kristofferson’s 80th birthday. The album is an impressive collection of Kristofferson’s greatest hits and deep cuts. From “Duvalier’s Dream” to “The Saber and the Rose,” it gives Kristofferson fans an extensive review of his illustrious career.
