Who is Billy Joe Shaver? The short version is that he’s one of the guys who created the outlaw country musical movement in the 70s, along with guys like Waylon Jennings. The longer version is that he’s a killer country/rock n’ roll songwriter and performer, a larger-than-life figure full of contradicting passions; he’s a man with a fervent faith in God, but who, in 2007, shot a man in the face. He’s had a long, tough life, losing family members (son, wife), a pair of fingers, but who’s also written some of the greatest tunes ever (I Been To Georgia on a Fast Train, I’m Just An Old Lump of Coal, Old Five and Dimers Like Me, Honky Tonk Heroes). He’s a man who sometimes seems more like myth. This one-of-a-kind legend plays here tonight with a full band. Opening is country singer-songwriter Zoe Muth, from Seattle, WA.
