    I remember Kris from a Star is Born circa 1980. He was indeed a hottie, and was on a number of posters with Streisand. I haven't seen any pictures of him in recent years, and this is an interesting thread. I wonder if he still works at all. I think he changed his focus from singing to acting at one point in time. I think that he is a very talented person actually. I can't remember the last time I heard about him actually.

    I liked Kris's looks when he got older. I think his more worn look is much sexier than his pretty boy era.

    @Sharla Skyspirit I listened to both videos, and I really liked Keven Fowler's music, but I admit that much of country music still makes me cry as I miss my husband.

    Now Paul Thorn would have been right up my youngest son's alley. He loved to laugh. His favorite was Merle Haggard, but my son couldn't resist a good funny, and he would have driven me mad whispering Paul Thorn's song in my ear after sneaking up behind me. :p:rolleyes:

    My oldest son was a Marty Robbins fan until he passed at age 27.

    I'm just starting to listen to music again, but for the last two years music just reminds me of those I've lost.

    Are there many upfifting country songs out there? I admit to not knowing much about the younger country music singers, but I'd like to listen some new songs that wouldn't remind of my lost family.

    FYI , last night on the n the public TV sttion they had some kind of concert featuring the late Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash...as well as Kris Kristofferson and Willy Nelson. I thought i was interesting that this thread ws just on, and the concert was on. Kristofferson wasn't young when this was filmed, but younger than he is now, I think he may have been about 45 or 50. It was called the Highwaymen. I know that was a group form way back, but that is what this was called. Kristofferson did a duet with Johnny Cash from his hit "Sunday Mornin's Comin Down."
