About The Book

Kris Kristofferson: Country Highwayman, Mary G. Hurd surveys the life and works of this highly respected American songwriter. For many, Kristofferson’s songs remain the gold standard of modern songwriters, and Kris Kristofferson follows the commitment to freedom of expression that has characterized his songwriting and struggles with the music industry. The author also explores his film career, work with the Highwaymen, liberal activism, decision to write and record two albums of material protesting the U.S. government’s intrusion in Central America, and reflowering as a musical artist with the release of This Old Road in 2006 and other studio albums.

Kris Kristofferson: Country Highwayman should appeal not only to dedicated fans of Kristofferson’s work as an artist but also to anyone interested in country music and its influence on modern Americana and the roots of music traditions.
