This man has the poetic spirit of Blake and the musical genius of Williams. Knowing to keep it simple and let the music speak. He is a genius for the ages. I have only seen him once in concert but I have followed him since I was 7. I am now 54. That's a fan.

Beat, tired &
Lonely

What can you do ?
Fear blinds your weary eyes,

Find a friend or two &
Rest your lonely rusty bones

Get a lonely woman & keep warm,
Keep warm

Kris... an accomplished songwriter.. . and I like him as an actor. Kris is one of my favorite singer/songw r i t e r s of all time... To Beat the Devil is a masterpiece. He only charted nine songs on Billboard's Hot Country Singles charts from 1970 to 1974 with Why Me as his only number one. On the Top Pop Singles charts he only charted seven songs from 1971-1977 with only one reaching into the Top Twenty... Why Me. Most of his music were covered by others... Ray Price, Merle Haggard, etc.
