Kris Kristofferson To Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

Singer and songwriter Kris Kristofferson will be honored with the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award during a Grammy Week ceremony Jan. 25, with formal acknowledgment of the honor made during the Jan. 26 Grammy telecast on CBS-TV.  Kristofferson joins the Beatles, the Isley Brothers, Kraftwerk and more as this year’s recipients.

The award recognizes “performers who have made contributions of outstanding artistic significance.”

Kris is a three-time GRAMMY winner and one of the most accomplished country stars of the late 20th century. This legendary artist rose to fame when numerous country singers began to cover his music. The Texas-born singer, songwriter, musician, and actor dominated the country music scene during the early ’70s with hits such as “Help Me Make It Through The Night,” “Me And Bobby McGee,” and “Lover Please.” While balancing his music and acting career, Kristofferson went on to form the country supergroup The Highwaymen, which included Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Kristofferson also has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame.
