Kris Kristofferson changed the songwriting landscape in Nashville when he arrived in the late sixties. In recent years the Rhodes Scholar has been known more for his acting roles than songwriting. The release of this collection aims to remind the world that Kristofferson is one of America's greatest songwriters. Kristofferson friends Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash, Jessi Colter, Shooter Jennings, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell revive Kristofferson favorites here, along with surprise performances by country star Gretchen Wilson, R&B soulmaker Brian McKnight, Latino beauty Marta Gomez, and Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe.

Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Since his first appearances in the late 1960s, Kris Kristofferson has been quietly achieving legendary status as a songwriter and performer, earning the admiration of the listening public and fellow musicians alike. PILGRIM: A CELEBRATION OF KRIS KRISTOFFERSON gives that admiration a formal public showing in the form of a tribute album featuring the likes of Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Gretchen Wilson, Randy Scruggs, and others.
Muze PNote As the author of "For the Good Times," "Sunday Morning Coming Down," and "Me and Bobby McGee," Kristofferson has a fair number of iconic classics to his name, but the real surprise of PILGRIM is how the guest artists breathe new life into the tunes. Rosanne Cash's plaintive version of "Lovin' Him Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again)" and Willie Nelson's breezy take on "The Legend" are only two of the album's many lovely standouts.

Professional Reviews

Dirty Linen (p.47)
- "[T]he breadth of Kristofferson's body of work is emphasized. It also illustrates that a good song with a well-told story and a solid melody transcends genre."

No Depression (p.105)
- "[T]he man's writings -- lyrics and tunes -- are as subtle and packed and potentially tricky as he is."

Mojo (Publisher)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "Great songs, great packaging and some big names....[With] faithful covers..."
