Spent A Lifetime

Just got the sad news that Billy Joe Shaver no longer walks among us. The original honky tonk hero from Corsicana, Texas, an outlaw among outlaws, was 81. Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash and even Elvis covered his fine fine songs over the years. Miss him.

If Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash are among the people who record your songs, you know you're good. RIP Billy Joe Shaver.
