Lenny Kravitz:
Leonard Albert “Lenny” Kravitz (born May 26, 1964) is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actor and arranger, whose “retro” style incorporates elements of rock, soul, R&B, funk, reggae, hard rock, psychedelic, folk and ballads. In addition to singing lead and backing vocals, Kravitz often played all the guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and percussion himself when recording. He is known for his elaborate stage performances and music videos.
He won the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance four years in a row from 1999 to 2002, breaking the record for most wins in that category as well as setting the record for most consecutive wins in one category by a male. He has been nominated for and won other awards, including American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, Radio Music Awards, BRIT Awards and Blockbuster Entertainment Awards. On December 1, 2011, Kravitz was made an Officer of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. He plays the role of Cinna in The Hunger Games film series.…

Could Lenny Kravitz become the next rocker to attempt a country crossover? It’s a question on the minds of many after the “Are You Gonna Go My Way” singer made a surprise appearance at the CMA Music Festival Saturday night in Nashville, where he turned in a determined but ultimately deflating five-song set of his hardest-rocking hits.

“I’m sure you weren’t expecting me to play right here,” Kravitz said, addressing the 50,000-strong crowd of hardcore country fans assembled at Music City’s LP Field. Leading a seven-piece backing band, complete with a horn section, Kravitz came out guns blazing, opening with a one-two punch of “Fly Away” into his hard-charging 1991 riff-rocker “Always on the Run.” Reprising his performance at Wednesday’s CMT Awards, Kravitz enlisted country star Jason Aldean to join him for a run through his 1999 cover of the Guess Who’s “American Woman.” Aldean stayed onstage to trade lines and licks with Kravitz on a stadium-shaking rendition of the rocker’s signature hit, “Are You Gonna Go My Way.”
