TBT: Happy Birthday, Kris Kristofferson!

In recent years, Kris Kristofferson has all but been forgotten in the mainstream. If you mention Johnny Cash or Willie Nelson, everyone knows who you're talking about. For those of you who don't know who he is, he gets mentioned a lot in current songs. He's also an actor.

But to the traditionalists, he's one of the greatest country music songwriters of all time. Kris Kristofferson got his start as a janitor in a studio in Nashville, and worked his way up to being a Highwayman and writing songs for Johnny Cash and Janis Joplin.

Happy birthday, Kris Kristofferson.
