Before Billy Joe Shaver’s death in 2020, Willie Nelson called him the greatest living songwriter. That isn’t out of line, as Billy Joe is a member of the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame and winner of the Academy of Country Music’s Poet’s Award. His songs have been covered by Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Patty Loveless, and many others, and even featured in films such as the Academy Award-winning Crazy Heart.
