In the early-’70s, a new kind of Hollywood connected with a new kind of country music — and no man brought both these worlds together better than Kris Kristofferson. Not only was he helping to take country out of the Grand Ol’ Opry and onto the real dirt roads of our shared Americana, with hits like “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Help Me Make it Through the Night” — but he also made the most successful Hollywood transition out of any cowboy singer from the time, acting in a series of the era’s now-classic films. When directors like Peckinpah, Scorsese and Mazursky sought soulful authenticity, they found it in the warm, world-weary, blue-eyed gaze of this hard-scrabble singer-songwriter.
