Early in his film acting career, he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of John Norman Howard in "A Star is Born,” opposite Barbra Streisand. Kristofferson later earned acclaim for his performance in John Sayles' "Lone Star.” He also worked with Sayles in the films "Silver City” and "Limbo.” His more recent films include "He's Just Not That Into You,” with an all-star ensemble cast, and the indie Western "The Last Rites of Ransom Pride.”

In addition, he earned an Academy Award® nomination for his composing work on Alan Rudolph's 1984 film "Songwriter,” in which Kristofferson also starred with Willie Nelson. Over the past four decades, his songs have also been heard in a wide range of film and television projects.

A three-time Grammy Award winner, Kristofferson first came to fame as a chart-topping singer and songwriter. In the early 1970s, he emerged as one of the most sought-after concert performers and songwriters of the time, with songs like "Me and Bobby McGee,” "Help Me Make It Through the Night,” "For the Good Times,” "Loving Her Was Easy” and "Why Me,” among others. He was also one of the legendary Highwaymen, together with his friends Willie Nelson and the late Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash. He has continued to tour several months of the year with his own band.

Kristofferson has been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. In addition to his other awards, he is a winner of the prestigious Johnny Mercer Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and was honored in 2002 with the American Veteran's Association's "Veteran of the Year” Award. In 2007, he was the recipient of the Johnny Cash Visionary Award from Country Music Television.
