Watch Kris Kristofferson Cover Tom Petty’s ‘I Won’t Back Down’ for History Channel Series


Country legend Kris Kristofferson has covered Tom Petty‘s classic “I Won’t Back Down” as promo for a new show on the History Channel,  Texas Rising.

In the video, we see Kristofferson performing the song in a studio, intersperesed with clips of battles and other scenes from the show.

Kristofferson was a wise choice for the miniseries, which will tell the story of Texas’s fight for independence during the era after the Alamo fell.
