7. He Was A Helicopter Pilot

While Kristofferson was in the Army, he became a helicopter pilot.

After he left the Army to pursue music, he struggled as a songwriter, so he took up a job with the National Guard to help pay the bills.

After Johnny Cash refused to listen to his demos time and time again, Kristofferson took matters into his own hands during a training run with the National Guard.

He actually landed the helicopter on Cash's front lawn in Hendersonville to give Cash a demo.

Ultimately it worked, because Cash later invited Kristofferson on stage at a music festival and the rest is history!
