Kristian Bush Pens Songs For ‘Troubadour’

Kristian Bush has composed a set of original songs for Janece Shaffer‘s play Troubadour, which will stage its premiere at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta on Jan. 18-Feb. 12, 2017.

A romantic comedy set in 1950s Nashville, Troubadour follows the son of a country music legend who joins forces with a singer-songwriter and a rodeo tailor to carry on his father’s legacy.

“Writing the throwback country songs for Troubadour was exciting, especially for an East Tennessee boy like me,” says Bush. “It was a joy discovering these characters, and a wonderful challenge to try and create hit songs for each of them that would fit in the authentic timeline of the story.”
