Kris Kristofferson was born in 1936 and started writing songs in the late 1940s. After a spell with the US military he moved to Nashville in 1965 and signed a recording contract with Monument in 1969. On 29 October of that year he recorded the original version of his own composition, "Help Me Make It Through The Night," which was released the following year on his debut album "Kristofferson." Sammi Smith's 1970 recording of the number reached number one in the C&W charts. Smith won a Grammy for best country vocal performance by a female singer in 1971 for "Help Me Make It Through The Night." The song also won Kris Kristofferson a grammy for best country song. Sammi Smith died on 12 February 2005, aged just 61. See also "Why Me Lord."
