The Contemporary Austin at the Jones Center

"...Two years ago, on a South by Southwest Friday morning, Kris Kristofferson poked his head into the Four Seasons' lobby lounge. He was there to check out his old friend Willie Nelson's appearance on the KGSR Morning Show, but quickly wound up in front of an open mic..."
"...It could be argued that there are three types of "Austin" musicians: those who live and work here, those who live here and work elsewhere, and those who don't live here but represent Austin to the world nonetheless. More than anyone except perhaps for Lyle Lovett, Kris Kristofferson feels like the last one, which is why it's not altogether surprising that he recently re-recorded some of his best-known songs here, and titled the collection The Austin Sessions. Since the early Seventies, Kristofferson has been no stranger to Austin..."
"...Kris Kristofferson won't let you worship him no matter how hard you try. He'll befriend you to prevent it, smiling widely and asking about you instead..."
"...A charismatic personality and compelling political philosopher, Trudell has a host of admirers, and many of his high-profile fans eagerly supply their impressions for this movie. Robert Redford, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, and others all sing his praises, but by the time Redford suggests that a conversation with Trudell is akin to talking with the Dalai Lama, it's clear Rae's biopic is planning to err on the side of hagiography..."
"...Of the three films opening for theatrical runs in Austin this weekend, two – Neil Young: Heart of Gold and V for Vendetta – have had sneak peeks at SXSW and are highly recommended by our reviewers. Many music-related features and documentaries also remain to be screened, along with a couple of films in the Kris Kristofferson retrospective, including Cisco Pike and 1984's Songwriter – one of the most illuminating studies ever of the corrosiveness of the music business..."
"...Starring: Rob Lowe, Bill Paxton and Randy Travis. Over the years, talents as unique, wide and varied as Roy Rogers, Tyrone Power, and Kris Kristofferson have each portrayed the infamous outlaw Jesse James..."

"...Highwaymen: (l-r) Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Rodney Crowell..."
"...Fêting three musicians – Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, and B.B. King – and a staffer, Dick Peterson, from soon the most enduring music show on television (Top of the Pops, ffpht), the PBS concert series currently broadcasting season 42 mixed and matched a typically Austin jamboree that parlayed whatever’s in the water here to a universal audience..."
"...So does Kris Kristofferson, God love him ("Lone Star," Music, February 24, 2006). Music's Rhodes scholar, Brownsville's face of Mount Rushmore, John Sayles' Lone Star sonofabitch, Kristofferson's back for more Austin sessions..."
