I wrote a short appreciation of one of my favorite songs for HiLobrow’s Dolly Your Enthusiasm series of critical riffs on classic country tracks. It’s a fine series, and my appreciation for HiLobrow editor Josh Glenn’s longstanding labors of love and obsession continues. I love Johnny Cash’s version of “Sunday Mornin’”, of course, but I prefer Kris Kristofferson’s own take, which has the most pathos and grit. I write that Kristofferson’s song “leaps, or rather drifts, into that temporal breach between sacred and profane, and becomes thereby perhaps the most reverent of godless American ballads.” The rest.
