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 super-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.
