Kris Kristofferson’s body of work, which includes “Me And Bobby McGee,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down,” and “Help Me Make It Through The Night,” occupies an august and substantial niche in the American songbook. But despite his hall-of-fame success, Kristofferson is not one to rest on his laurels, and, at age 76, he’s back with an impressive new album, the Don Was-produced Feeling Mortal. Watch Kristofferson perform the title track, and check out the podcast to hear “Ramblin’ Jack,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down,” as well as tales about Kristofferson’s early days in Nashville.
