Kris Kristofferson, legendary singer, songwriter, and movie star, performed Wednesday night, May 15, 2013, in Nashville, TN at the Ryman Auditorium, better known as the the Mother Church of Country Music, which Suzanne Burton and I attended.
After the show Kris and I were able to have a short conversation and I was photographed with him by Suzanne.
Kris penned Sunday Morning Comin Down, Me and Bobby McGee, Help Me Make It Through the Night, and Why Me, Lord.
Why Me was inspired by a song sung the night before at a church in Nashville by Larry Gatlin.
Kris told the story about how the night that Larry performed and how he was saved by our Lord as he accepted Jesus as his personal Savior.
Kris said after he was saved that he felt the need to write and record his song. Larry Gatlin was a surprise guest tonight and he performed his song that inspired Kris to change his life.
Kris is now 76 years young and still has a wonderful gift from our Lord of being blessed with a tremendous voice. His performance lasted about two hours. - Big Al Owens
