Kris Kristofferson Sings Kristofferson
9 Tunes From Nashville's Favorite Son
There’s no good way to winnow when you’re trying to come up with a Kris Kristofferson playlist. So we looked to one of his fellow Highwaymen, Willie Nelson, for guidance. When Nelson paid tribute to Kristofferson’s songwriting prowess by recording Willie Nelson Sings Kristofferson, he picked these nine winning tunes. Here are Kristofferson’s own versions.
“Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down”
“Loving Her Was Easier (Than Anything I’ll Ever Do Again)”
“Me and Bobby McGee”
“For the Good Times”
“Help Me Make It Through the Night”
“Please Don’t Tell Me How the Story Ends”
“The Pilgrim: Chapter 33”
“You Show Me Yours (And I’ll Show You Mine)”
