A singer, actor and all-around icon, Kris Kristofferson began as a military captain. But in between his life as the latter and his career as the former, he was a go-to songwriter for Janis Joplin (who sang his "Me and Bobby McGee") and many others. Kristofferson continues to crank out new solo albums, but he's seen extra attention this year thanks to Please Don't Tell Me How the Story Ends, which compiles the simple, stripped-down demos he used to sell some of his best-known songs in the late '60s and early '70s. Expect him to mix old favorites and new gems at this appearance.
