Kristofferson The Movie Star
Kris Kristofferson has done it all. He grew up in a military family, he was a Gold Gloves boxer, studied writing, he's a legendary songwriter ("Sunday Morning Coming Down", "Me and Bobby McGee", "Help Me Make it Through the Night"), and he's a terrific actor. In fact, he earned a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a role that was originally intended for Elvis Presley, A Star is Born. His other films include his debut in Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, Lone Star, and Blade. On April 15th, Kristofferson, in addition to his many other accolades, including his induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame, he will be honored with the Career Achievement Award for acting at the Nashville Film Festival. Following the award reception, Kristofferson's latest film, Bloodworth, will be screened at the event.
Also making its world premiere at the festival will be Chely Wright's coming out documentary, Wish Me Away. The premiere will proceed Kristofferson's award presentation.
