The Ultimate Kris Kristofferson Holiday Gift Guide
The holiday season has finally arrived, which means that you’ll need to find the perfect gifts for those special sound nerds in your life. Over the next several weeks, we’re sharing carefully curated gift guides for the ultimate music fans of Kris Kristofferson, Kenny Rogers, Bob Marley, and more.
Kris Kristofferson is a renaissance man through and through. At age 81 he’s lived through myriad careers, from his days as a golden glove boxer, a Rhodes Scholar, a veteran, and a movie star, to his lifetime role as a songwriter. His legacy was honored back in March of 2016 with The Life & Songs Of Kris Kristofferson, a live concert event that featured several of the “Me & Bobby McGee” singer’s friends like Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash, Eric Church, and so many others.
Our love for Kristofferson lasts all year long, but we wanted to put together the perfect gift guide for the Kris fan in your life. Scroll down to check it out!

Back in the late ’60s and early ’70s there were country musicians … and there were outlaws. Author Michael Streissguth tells of the story of when these rebel songwriters descended upon Nashville trying to make a name for themselves as outsiders. Channeling the unrest of the times, all three Country Music Hall of Famers (Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson) resisted the music industry’s unwritten rules and emerged as leaders of the outlaw movement that ultimately changed the recording industry.
