Episode Summary

EDIT
Kris Kristofferson
Army Captain, helicopter pilot, aspiring novelist and Oxford University Rhodes scholar, Kris Kristofferson was just about to begin teaching literature at West Point when he decided to try his hand at country music. That hand penned some of country's most recognizable hits, including "Help Me Make It Through the Night," "Why Me," "Loving Her Was Easier," "For the Good Times" and "Me and Bobby McGee," but it was his 1970 No.1 hit, "Sunday Morning Coming Down," recorded by Johnny Cash, that catapulted the writer into public scrutiny and controversy. The country was changing -- what had been an era of decorum and reservation had been disrupted by war, drugs and unrest. Kristofferson was years ahead of country music's Outlaw Movement with lyrics that included "wishin' Lord that I was stoned."moreless
