Featured Artist Friday: February 17th

We've got two artists we're featuring this week: Kris Kristofferson and Miranda Lambert.


Kristofferson is a native Texan who wrote many of his best hits while working on oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.  "Me and Bobby McGee" has been covered by dozens of other artists, but we're adding the original version to our line up.  It was included on his debut album, Kristofferson.

Lambert is also a native Texan who has topped the US Country and Top 100 Charts with just about everything she's released.  Our news songs were pulled from three different albums of hers: Kerosene, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and Revolution.

Our featured songs this week will be:

  1. "Me and Bobby McGee"
  2. "Kerosene"
  3. "The House That Built Me"
  4. "Famous in a Small Town"

Every Friday, we will be adding a few new songs to the KBEC rotation.  You can hear our choices for the week on the Afternoon Drive with Mike Roberts.  If you have any comments or suggestions on who we should or shouldn't add, feel free to drop us an e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
