Kris Kristofferson (born 1936)

An influential singer, songwriter, and actor, he came to Nashville in 1965, fresh out of the army, to pursue his dream of writing country songs. Although he is best known for such songs as “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Help Me Make it Through the Night,” he became a well respected, much-in-demand film actor after his debut in Dennis Hopper’s The Last Movie in 1971. He concentrated on film acting for a time, but in the early eighties he, along with Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Waylon Jennings, formed the superb-group, The Highwaymen, with whom he toured and recorded. A member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame, he continues to write and record his songs.
