    Probably one of the worst singers to ever record, BUT what a fantastic songwriter and entertainer!! The man wrote songs that made lots of artists famous. Ray Price, Cash, Nelson, and on and on...... Oh, and a great actor as well.

    I like his singing. But agree what a great writer.

    He is one of my favorite singers. I love his singing, the feeling his songs have when he sings. I can't think of a song that KK sings that I prefer by another artist. I'll take KK over Cash version of Sunday Mornin' Coming Down all day every day.

    His singing is fine . . . but then I also like Bob Dylan's singing . . . .

    However, I never found Kris to be much of an actor. I mean, c'mon . . . his range as an actor is about as narrow as Frank Zappa's Montana farm (you know, the farm he was gonna buy to raise up a crop o' dental floss).

    He'd be in the history books even if all he wrote was "Me and Bobby McGee".
