Thursday 11/17/22 11pm ET: Feature LP: Various – Live Forever: A Tribute to Billy Joe Shaver (2022)

Billy Joe Shaver was considered one of the last real deal artists in country music. When he stared down Waylon Jennings at Tompall Glaser’s Hillbilly Central in Nashville and told him he’d kick his ass “in front of God and everybody” if he didn’t listen to his songs, it resulted in the 1973 album Honky Tonk Heroes, which sparked off the Outlaw movement in earnest.
