Love him.

My first significant exposure to country music was from roommate who shared my love of jazz. We were in a phase of listening to a lot of horn players--especially Cannonball Adderley, Art Pepper and Miles.

One day said "you have to hear this" and put on an album of Willie Nelson signing Kris Kristofferson songs.

After the initial shock wore off I was floored by the songs and of course Willie's delivery. Been a fan of both Kris and Willie ever since.

What an influence Kris has been on so many songwriters. It was good to see him get some recognition in the recent Ken Burns film on PBS.
