Kristofferson, a Country Music Hall of Fame member, is considered a true poet who helped modernize the genre with songs like, “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down,” “Help Me Make It Through the Night,” “Me & Bobby McGee,” and “If Loving Her Was Easier”. These are the songs of heartbreak and despair, of love and loss, of yearning and hope. These are the songs so honest that we adopted them as our own. They are the songs of a life led unlike any other: An All-American athlete, Golden Gloves boxer, Army Ranger, helicopter pilot, singer-songwriter, social activist, humanitarian and movie star.

by:  Hawk Chevy

During the 2014 Grammy Awards, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson started off the performance singing “Highwayman”. Merle soon appeared, followed by Blake Shelton to sing Merle’s famous “Okie From Muskogee”. The top it all off, they finished up by performing “Mama Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys”.

It’s obvious the audience is enjoying the performance because everyone is singing along with smiling faces, not to mention the men got a standing ovation.
