Kris Kristofferson dedicates this song to Willie Nelson in concert, and tells his story about being inspired to write it while standing backstage, watching Willie Nelson perform and interact with his fans:

Final Attraction
by Kris Kristofferson

Well here you are
The final attraction
Awaiting direction
From somewhere above

Your finest performance
Approaching perfection
I know what you’re making
Is some kind of love

Somewhere in your lifetime
You were dared into feeling
So many emotions
That tear you apart

But they love you so badly
For sharing their sorrows
So pick up that guitar
Go break a heart

Come on boy, get back up there
You can do it one more time
For Hank Williams, go break a heart
And Janis Joplin, go break a heart
And John and June Carter,
And Stephen Bruton, go break a heart
And Waylon Jennings,
go break a heart
And John Lennon, go break a heart
And Roger Miller, ”
And Jimi Hendrix, ”
And Mickey Newbury, ”
And maybe one time for me
Go break a heart

Kris Kristofferson will be the subject of a special tribute during next week’s 53rd annual CMA Awards — the iconic tunesmith is the recipient of the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award. In a musical homage to the songwriter (who will not be in attendance), Dierks Bentley with Sheryl Crow, Chris Janson, and John Osborne of the duo Brothers Osborne are set to sing Kristofferson’s “Me and Bobby McGee.”

Named for an artist who in the past has recorded entire albums filled with Kristofferson’s compositions, the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award is given in recognition of an artist’s historical impact on fans and industry professionals alike. Previous recipients, along with Nelson, include Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers, and most recently, Dolly Parton.

Kristofferson, whose most impactful songs also include “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down,” the 1970 CMA Song of the Year recorded by Johnny Cash; the Ray Price classic “For the Good Times”; and Sammi Smith’s “Help Me Make It Through the Night” also scored his own major crossover hit with the spiritually themed “Why Me.” An actor as well as a singer-songwriter, Kristofferson’s film work furthered his international profile with such films as the 1976 version of A Star Is Born. Kristofferson was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2004.

The CMA Awards, co-hosted by Carrie Underwood with Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton, will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, November 13th, beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
