Kris joins his good friend Melinda Doolittle, the Marcus Roberts Band and the Nashville Symphony for what is described as "the ultimate night of Gershwin." This is a three-night engagement, so if you're in the Nashville area, check it out.

Festival: April 6, 2018: Tin Pan South, Nashville, TN


Tin Pan South performance
April 6, 2018
The Local
Nashville, TN
6:30 PM CDT

Kris plays the Tin Pan South festival for singer-songwriters. This annual festival attracts many name performers. Kris last performed at it in 2015, where he debuted Waves  and the Dames' song Belle Meade Gal (sorry no video of that to link and good gravy, this was three years ago!!).

Anything we get from this year, I'll post here! It would be cool if he did Never in a Million Years with Tony Lucca (since he co-wrote it). It would be even cooler if we got new music!

Updated 4/10/2018: Found the set list and a cool behind the scenes video. Was there a premiere? Maybe? (Confirmed, there was!) After the jump...

Not sure if this is a writer's round or just some friends jamming, but former Season 12 idol Janelle Arthur is doing a concert with some friends at a Nashville venue, and one of those friends is Kris.

Updated 3/20/2018: Got the set list and a few photos!

Event: March 1, 2018: Sing Your Song, Jackson, MS

Sing Your Song
Songwriting contest and a performance from Kris
March 1, 2018
Jackson, MS

Kris is serving as the celebrity judge for a songwriting contest sponsored by the local arts council and tourism bureau. Normally, I don't bother with these types of events because this is a blog about Kris' own live performances, but we'll make an exception for this particular event as it promises a live set from Kris.

This contestant seems excited about it! Listening to his Spotify, he kind of has a Kris vibe. (The song he's performing isn't on Spotify.)

Updated 3/2/2018: Not sure who won, but we did get Kris' set list and an IG video of him singing Waves (which is not on the set list)!
