About Kris Kristofferson
Born in 1936, Kristofferson traveled around a lot as his father was in the military. Eventually, his family settled in San Mateo. He went on to enroll in Pomona College where he celebrated success in collegiate rugby and football as well as track and field. He also studied at Oxford and enjoyed time as a boxer. After he served time in the military after college, he moved to Nashville in 1965.
While working as a floor sweeper at Columbia Recording Studios, he met June Carter and gave her a recording of his music. It wasn't until he took a leap of faith and landed a helicopter in Johnny Cash's front yard that the Man in Black gave the tape a listen. When Cash recorded, 'Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down', Kristofferson was immediately thrust into fame with a songwriter of the year win.
From there, he went on to create plenty of great music, including songs that were recorded by Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Janis Joplin. When Kristofferson released his solo album The Silver Tongued Devil, he began celebrating his own success as a recording artist. He went on to earn plenty of awards, cultivating a great career and making a name for himself in both the music and the film industry.
