The Exemplary Life of Kris Kristofferson
The eighty years Kris Kristofferson has spent on this planet have not been wasted. Born in Texas and raised in a military family, he started out with a Golden Glover boxer and a creative writing degree from Pomona College in California. Upon graduation, he earned a Rhodes scholarship to study literature at Oxford, where he continued to box, played rugby and wrote songs. After graduating from Oxford, Kristofferson served in the army as a helicopter pilot, achieving the rank of Captain. In 1965, he left the Army and moved to Nashville to pursue music.
Kristofferson earnestly lived in the shadow of Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, the latter becoming a good friend later on. After relatively little struggling in Music City, Kristofferson began producing hits upon hits. He truly is a genius, with penning iconic lyrics such as “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose” the singer-songwriter quickly became a household name.
The past few years have not been kind on the artist’s health, with doctors diagnosing symptoms of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. His cognitive abilities began depleting and he struggled to remember things. Of late, however, it has been understood that it was Lyme disease and not dementia and the singer is now in the final stages of his treatment. In true celebratory mode, Kristofferson is set to perform in his chosen home town, at the NSAI 50 Years of Song Festival. Kris Kristofferson Nashville tickets for the event are available now.
