This Day In Country Music History – Kris Kristofferson Born

Singer, songwriter, actor, helicopter pilot and all around bad ass, Kris Kristofferson has lived a life hasn’t he. Kris was born this day back in 1936 so we wish him a very happy birthday.

There are so many great stories to tell about this genuinely talented man. My favorite involves Johnny Cash, a “borrowed” helicopter and a song the network TV censors didn’t want you to hear.The part about the helicopter might be in dispute but it’s true the network censors didn’t want Johnny Cash singing a particular line in the song in question.

Here are some of our favorite Kris Kristofferson tunes, some he sings, some he wrote and all carry a piece of this incredible mans gift.

 

Why Me Lord – The story behind the song

Sunday Morning Coming Down – Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson

 

For The Good Times – Ray Price

Help Me Make It Through The Night – Sammi Smith

Me and Bobby McGee- Janis Joplin
