Barbra Streisand is a musical legend. No doubt about that.

But she is not a Classic Country Music Legend. No doubt about that either. So then, the question is this: What in the world does Barbra Streisand have to do with Classic Country Music?

Well, let’s take a trip back 39 years. It’s 1976. Barbra Streisand is already a huge Pop Music and Hollywood star. Classic Country Legend Kris Kristofferson is recognized as one of the greatest songwriting talents on the planet. He’s also acted in movies and has created a lot of ‘buzz’ in Hollywood. How about putting these two star’s together in a movie?

The result was a remake of a Hollywood classic, A Star Is Born.

It’s the story of a young female ‘on the rise’ star meeting and falling in love with an established rock star who is, well – troubled. In fact, he’s out of control. Check out the clip here from the movie.

While the film was not critically a success, people flocked to the theater’s and it was a huge box office success. And of course, it gave Barbra Streisand the biggest hit of her career.
