Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson & Kris Kristofferson To Debut as The Musketeers In 2011
Haggard and Nelson were already plannning to collaborate on an album when they decided they also wanted Kristofferson to be a part of it. The trio will hit the studio soon to begin working on the album. Haggard tells Rolling Stone, "We talked about the three of us doing it. I'm sure if we're healthy and live to do it, we'll do it."
But the group hasn't come up with a title..yet.
"We thought about the title: the Musketeers... because there's the three of us," he says. "We'll come up with some little way of describing ourselves, I guess, and put it together into a show.
The trio discussed the project in Washington D.C. where Haggard received the Kennedy Center Honors, a lifetime achievement award for the performing arts.
