Kris Kristofferson at the Ryman, 9/13/14

The Spin digs conceptual art, so we were fascinated with Kris Kristofferson's solo acoustic show Saturday night at the Ryman. His performance was a benefit for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and it went beyond the usual singer-songwriter conventions - cult of personality, minimal accompaniment, unstudied vocal approach, and the like - into a sphere all its own.

On stage and screen, Kris Kristofferson remains as much a cult figure as an icon

At roughly the halfway point of his half-century-long career - sitting snugly between Big Top Pee Wee and the second Highwaymen record - Kris Kristofferson played the lead in a low-budget 1989 sci-fi film called Millennium . In comparison to his legendary achievements as a Rhodes scholar, Army captain, Nashville renegade and prolific songwriting genius, this minor cinematic misstep might seem like an odd moment to single out.

Carrie Underwood, Kris Kristofferson Honored at Laid-Back ACM Party

Rascal Flatts had barely left the stage at last night's Eighth Annual ACM Honors - accompanied by none other than genuflecting quarterback Tim Tebow, who presented the group with an international award honoring their recent European tours - when host Jake Owen entered from stage right, flashed a grin at the sold-out audience and shouted, "Congrats to One Direction!" It was a good-natured joke at Flatts' expense - the trio signed their first record deal with Lyric Street in 1999, during Nashville's own version of the boy band craze. But it also summed up the loose tone and camaraderie of the evening.

Vince Gill Named BMI Icon Award Recipient

The last we heard from Vince Gill, he was paying tribute to two of his biggest influences - California country pioneers Buck Owens and Merle Haggard - on Bakersfield , a CMA-nominated album of duets recorded with pedal steel extraordinaire Paul Franklin. The tables will turn this November, though, when Gill receives the tribute treatment from an all-star crop of musicians at the 62nd annual BMI Country Awards.

It's tough to be a trencherman first thing in the morning

That's a line from the wonderful old song, "Sunday Morning Coming Down," written by Kris Kristofferson and best sung by Johnny Cash. I suspect most adult males have had a beer for breakfast, with an equally cold slice of pizza, at least once in their lives.
