Johnny Cash & Willie Nelson & Kristofferson - Me and Bobby McGee
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
On November 10, 2009, Kristofferson was honoured as a BMI Icon at the 57th annual BMI Country Awards. Throughout his career, Kristofferson's songwriting has garnered 48 BMI Country and Pop Awards. He later remarked,
"The great thing about being a songwriter is you can hear your baby interpreted by so many people that have creative talents vocally that I don't have."
Kristofferson had always denied having a good voice, and has said that as he's aged, what quality it might once have had commenced to decay.

Afterward, the director asks Kristofferson to sign a guitar. "I'm not a very good guitar player," he tells Kristofferson.
"Neither am I," Kristofferson responds.
Self-deprecation is one of Kristofferson's most conspicuous traits. He is especially down on his singing: "I don't think I'm that good a singer," he says. "I can't think of a song that I've written that I don't like the way somebody else sings it better."
