Artist Portrait

Kris Kristofferson

g, voc, *1936 US, Brownsville, Texas
Singer / Songwriter of Country and World
A.k.a. Kristoffer Kristian Kristofferson

American singer, songwriter and actor, born 22 June 1936 in Brownsville, Texas, USA. Both a respected recording artist and songwriter - among his best known compositions are "Me And Bobby McGee" (1969), "For The Good Times" (1970) and "Help Me Make It Through The Night" (1970) - he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2004. Kristofferson is also well known for his left-wing views, making him something of a misfit in the American country scene. Kristofferson was married to Rita Coolidge (2nd marriage) from 1973 until 1980. He's been married to Lisa Kristofferson, née Meyers, (3rd marriage) since 1983 and they have five children.
