This Old Road is an album by Kris Kristofferson, released in 2006 on New West Records. The underlying theme of the record is a retrospective and reflective look at what Kristofferson deems to have been important elements of his life.
It was his first album of new material since 1995's A Moment of Forever, which was also produced by Don Was. Kristofferson re-recorded two of his songs for the album. The original recording of "This Old Road" was released on Repossessed and the original version of "The Burden of Freedom" appeared on Border Lord.
Allmusic's Thom Jurek gave the album three-and-a-half out of five stars and called it a "welcome comeback" for Kristofferson, whom he felt had improved "considerably" as a singer: "Kristofferson is dead-on here, razor-sharp, economical in his language, and to the bone in his insight." By contrast, Robert Christgau of The Village Voice graded it a "dud", indicating "a bad record whose details rarely merit further thought."
