Kris Kristofferson & Willie Nelson Perform “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” at Taste of Country – Blackbird Presents Records offers another sneak preview from the upcoming concert film and CD/DVD release, The Life & Songs Of Kris Kristofferson. “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” features Kris Kristofferson joined by longtime friend Willie Nelson. Together they perform the Kristofferson-penned, 1970 No. 1 country hit for their fellow Highwayman, Johnny Cash. Watch it on TASTE OF COUNTRY. Kristofferson also performed the song last week at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium for the Nashville Songwriters Association International’s 50th anniversary celebration, honoring each of the 50 Song Of The Year winners in its history.
“Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” was the first of three NSAI Song Of The Year winners Kristofferson penned, and he is one of only two songwriters to ever write as many. The song is currently available to stream and download at most online outlets HERE.
As previously announced, CMT will premiere the 90-minute broadcast on Friday, October 27 at 10 PM ET and Blackbird Presents Records will release the full-length concert film as a CD/DVD combo on the same day.

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.
