So sad to hear that Fred Foster has passed. Fred, a good friend of the Bryants, was a songwriter, producer, and the founder of Monument Records. Fred wrote the song “Me And Bobby McGee” with Kris Kristofferson and Kris’ story behind titling that song has a lot to do with Boudleaux:
“The title came from Fred Foster. He called one night and said, ‘I’ve got a song title for you. It’s “Me and Bobby McKee.”’ I thought he said ‘McGee.’ Bobby McKee was the secretary of Boudleaux Bryant, who was in the same building with Fred.”
Fred will be sorely missed, but his music will always be a reminder of him that lives on forever.
