CMT will premiere the 90-minute broadcast on Friday, October 27 at 10 PM ET/PT, and Blackbird Presents Records will release the full-length concert film as a CD/DVD combo, which is available for immediate preorder at http://songsofkristofferson.com and http://pledgemusic.com/projects/songsofkristofferson.

In addition to the CD/DVD release fans can get exclusive merchandise from PledgeMusic (http://pledgemusic.com/projects/songsofkristofferson) including a limited edition framed gig poster from the night of the show, color photo, and an Epiphone Ltd. Ed. 1963 J-45 guitar, all signed by Kris Kristofferson. Merchandise bundles which include the official concert t-shirt, hat and CD/DVD are available via Blackbird Presents at http://songsofkristofferson.com.

Kristofferson, a Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, is considered a true poet who helped modernize the genre with songs such as "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," "Help Me Make It Through the Night," "Me and Bobby McGee" and "Lovin' Her Was Easier." These are the songs of heartbreak and despair, of love and loss, of yearning and hope. These are the songs so honest that we adopted them as our own. They are the songs of a life led unlike any other: An All-American athlete, Golden Gloves boxer, Army Ranger, helicopter pilot, singer-songwriter, social activist, humanitarian and movie star.

Keith Wortman is creator and executive producer of the show. GRAMMY® Award-winner Don Was served as music director alongside country music legend Buddy Cannon. An all-star band that included featured artist and GRAMMY® Award-winner Buddy Miller backed the performers at this incomparable concert event taping.

"Few musicians have had as profound an impact on music as Kris Kristofferson," Blackbird CEO Keith Wortman says. "It's only fitting that we celebrated his artistry just blocks from where the legend was born, with both his friends and contemporaries and those who are continuing his legacy with raw, honest songwriting of their own."
