Kris Kristofferson's Army Shirt

Kris Kristofferson's résumé is one of country music's most eclectic. The Renaissance man was a janitor, a boxer and a helicopter pilot before becoming one of the genre's most celebrated songwriters. While Kristofferson, like his longtime friend Johnny Cash, favored black in his manner of dress, he once sported Army green as a captain and Airborne Ranger. This government-issued utility shirt, with his name above the right breast pocket, is on display next to another artifact from Kristofferson's storied history: the lobby card for Sam Peckinpah's Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, in which he starred as the titular gunslinger.
