Kris Kristofferson by Fans, for Fans

In appreciation of the Silver Tongued Devil

Jaime Cothron

Why Me? When Jaime sings this song, to him, it’s like a prayer. He tells us about how he came to appreciate Kris Kristofferson.

I was in my teens back in the late 1960s when I first come to really know who Kris was. People have told me all my life that I look like him.

I was a trucker for over 40 years.

People would see me in truck stops and ask me for my autograph – I’d sign Jaime Cothron give it back.

When they read it and said, “THAT’S NOT KRIS KRISTOFFERSON!”, I’d tell them “I’m not either.”


I’ve had some fun with impersonating him. A lot of people say that I sound like him. He’s a great person and I hope to be able to meet him if he is ever in the North Central Florida area, as I live in the Gainesville, Ocala area.

Keep me updated if and when you hear that he’s coming down this way.

I love Kris’ music, movies, all that he has done. I admire and appreciate, and respect him as a great human being.

 I love the song and the man that wrote it. That’s a prayer song for me. I hope that people will be blessed by it and that JESUS will be lifted up

  1. I love that song, why me lord.
    I’ve heard many gospel songs but non touched my heart like Krises one did. My sister,and I try tyo sing it and I just ca t get past the first 2 verse and can’t carry on.
    I wish I could thank him for Why me Lord before he’s gone. Thank you Mr. Kristofferson
    Thank you.

    1. Thanks for your comment. A fan in our group said that if Kris had only written Why Me and nothing else, that that one song would have been enough of a contribution because of the impact it has had on so many people on a deeply personal level. I have some idea of how you feel.

      Kris is such a down to earth man that he honestly seems surprised and a little embarrassed almost when anyone tries to thank him for…anything, but the sheer love from fans that floods from the audience and onto the stage is tangible and perhaps … he knows that he is appreciated. I hope so.

      Bless your heart for your kindness. This song is special – Perhaps gratitude finds its own expression even when we can’t use words?

      Best regards,
