Quotes & Highlights

Listen to audio clips of songs by Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson on the Greek Theatre website.


Over a distinguished fifty year-plus career that’s taken him from a drastically misspent criminal youth to solitary confinement in San Quentin to the Country Music Hall of Fame, Merle Haggard has memorably portrayed, in song, myriad archetypal characters. Whether fugitive, troubadour, misfit or crusader, he’s explored each perspective with a critical acuity, a hard-won skill that’s allowed him to score no less than 40 number one country hits.

Immediately embraced by country fans, Haggard also earned the respect of his peers. In addition to the 40 #1 hits, Haggard charted scores of Top Ten songs. He has won just about every music award imaginable, both as a performer and as a songwriter and most recently acknowledged with a Kennedy Center Honor in recognition for his lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts.  His body of work easily places him beside Hank Williams as one of the most influential artists in country music. In 2010, Haggard released I Am What I Am, which received great reviews and this fall he will release his second Vanguard album.

Kris Kristofferson’s NewWest albums mark the latest works of a distinguished career that has encompassed the authorship of such classic American songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down,” and “Help Me Make It Through the Night”; stardom in such feature films as Lonestar, the Blade Trilogy, A Soldier’s Daughter Never Cries, Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid and A Star is Born; honors including three Grammy Awards and a Golden Globe Award; and years of outspoken political and social activism. In 2009, he received the BMI Icon Award at the performing rights organization’s Country Awards. Kristofferson is currently a member of the Songwriter Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame.

In the last decade, the now 75-year-old performer has been on a vigorous schedule of international solo appearances. In 2007 Kristofferson released his first album in 12 years, This Old Road, and in 2009, he released Closer to the Bone, both on NewWest records which garnered rave reviews.

Don’t miss these icons perform classic hits and new favorites for one night only at The Greek Theatre!
