Kris’ Quote, Johnny’s Cash & Charley’s Pride

Kris Kristofferson writes. That is what he does. Sure, he sings, acts, raises his voice & money in support of causes that he believes in – But most of all – he writes.

Peter Cooper writes, too. The title of his book makes me smile.

A recent article by Tim Gianni (the author’s ex-Boss & close friend) says

Peter Cooper is  “A musician who has a few albums out himself, he relished every moment, every opportunity, to spend time with Music City’s finest citizens, listening to their tales.”

The book is “a human-flavored read that begins with Cowboy Jack Clement ………..and ends with Waylon Jennings talking to him about Chet Atkins after that great guitarist, RCA exec and Nashville innovator had died.”

Quotes the author saying,  “I spent a lot of time off the clock around Cowboy Jack Clement and Tom T. Hall and Kris Kristofferson, because I recognized they were extraordinary people and because I’m selfish, and I wanted to hear the things that they had to say when I wasn’t writing for publication.” &

“I wrote it as if I was talking to someone at the Three Crow Bar who had just happened in and sat at the bar stool next to me.”


& Mr. Cooper wrote & wrote – 253 pages in all,  framed in 19 Chapters.
