Kris Kristofferson’s music might not be quite as well known as his buddies Waylon, Willie, and Johnny (who he was in a super-group, The Highwaymen, with) but amongst songwriters in the know, he is just as highly respected. Rhodes Scholar, helicopter pilot, songwriter, janitor, actor, heartthrob, and all-around Renaissance Man. His history is just as legendary as any of his outlaw country counterparts.
And now, PIAPTK Records pays homage to this living legend and his songwriting through a new double LP full of amazing artists putting their own personal spin on his classic tales of ne’er-do-wells, miscreants, ladies men, hard luck heroes, and misunderstood every-men battling the devil. PIATTK contacted all of the friends and artists that they have worked with over the years, and within months, they had over 35 incredible submissions.
Tracks by Advance Base, Wooden Wand featuring the Scrivener, Little Wings, Simon Joyner, Golden Boots, Calvin Johnson, Turner Cody, Karl Blau, The Blank Tapes, Ohian, Wckr Spgt, The Gift Machine, Southerly, Daring Ear, Matt Hopper, the Black Swans, and lots more.
