April 2015

The Kristoffersons, Raul Malo & Good Times

Great video, shared in a tweet by Skyline in March this year, posted on their channel in April last year.

Unsure when it was recorded, but I am certain you will enjoy it.  Watch to the end & you will see that Kris himself surely did 🙂

Information from Zimbio suggests that the footage in Skyline’s tweet is from a recording by Skyville Live from a show recorded on 7 April 2015 in Nashville, Tennessee.  Their article includes a picture of musicians who performed or attended the show, namely:

Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley, Brandy Clark, Hillary Scott, Kelsey Mathews, Raul Malo, Amanda Shires and Jason Isbell who were photographed with Kris himself.  I have no permission to use the pic, but you can see it via the article link .

Raul Malo made a name for himself with his band, the Mavericks until 2001 when he set off on his solo career. He indulged an obvious love for latin music & good old jazz – Perhaps a passion inherited from his Cuban parents?

His 2007 album, After Hours saw a return to country music.  This album features many well-loved country standards which Malo performs with his own  unique style .  He breathed new life into traditional songs like Welcome to my World, Crying Time, A Fool such as I & yes…. For the Good Times.

Malo sang The National Anthem at the Brickyard 400 NASCAR race in July of 2012, &  the Mavericks reformed in the same year.  They went on to win the Americana Award for duo/group of the year in 2015.

I hope you enjoy the video of his performance of For the Good Times as much as I did.  Kris & Lisa Kristofferson clearly had a relaxed & fun-filled evening.
