Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Kris Kristofferson is the final performer to join the line-up for this year’s Stagecoach:California’s Country Musical Festival ; he’ll fill the slot originally held by country music legend Loretta Lynn.

Earlier this week, Lynn cancelled the next few weeks of her 2011 tour based on her ongoing recuperation from recent knee surgery.  

Kristofferson–who performed at the inaugural Stagecoach in 2007–will kick off his upcoming tour with this performance.

Set times for this year’ Stagecoach on Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1 at the beautiful Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, will be announced next week.
