Overview

Kris Kristofferson has been making things happen his entire life. The Country Music Hall of Fame member has achieved remarkable success as a country songwriter at the start of the 1970s. His songs "Me and Bobby McGee," "Help Me Make It Through the Night," "Sunday Morning Coming Down," and "For the Good Times," all chart-topping hits, helped redefine country songwriting. By 1987, it was estimated that more than 450 artists had recorded Kristofferson's compositions.

His renown as a songwriter triggered Kristofferson's successful career as a performer and that, in turn, brought him to the attention of Hollywood, leading to a flourishing career as a film actor. Kristofferson has acted in more than 70 films. He's appeared in cult favorites including the Blade trilogy, A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. Recent films include Fast Food Nation, Dreamer: Inspired By A True Story, He's Just Not That In To You, and Dolphin Tale.

Heralded as an artist's artist, the three-time GRAMMY winner has recorded 29 albums, including three with pals Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, as part of the Highwaymen. Kristofferson has spent three decades performing concerts all over the world, in most recent years in a solo acoustic setting, which puts the focus on the songs.
