Kris Kristofferson Covers Tom Petty’s ‘Won’t Back Down’ for ‘Texas Rising’ Miniseries
And we all thought Tom Petty did an amazing job with the original. Kris Kristofferson not only covered one of the Heart Breaker's most famous songs, he did the song justice; and made it, the proverbial, his own.
The song will be featured in the soundtrack to the History Channel's five-part miniseries "Texas Rising." Which will also include the song, “Take Me to Texas,” performed by George Strait and written by Brandy Clark.
"Texas Rising" premieres May 25 at 9 p.m. ET on the History Channel.
