I have always loved Billy Joe Shaver. He was a wonderful songwriter and performer. I always hoped to get to see him live and regret that I never did. I used to listened to his album Tramp On Your Street on constant repeat while my dad was dying of cancer. There was something so soulful about his songs and his voice that I found such comfort in. Such a sad day.

Oh man… those are tunes I listened to with my dad’s big ol’ DJ headphones, rocking in his chair and singing at the top of my little lungs.
He brought a lot of joy to this old world. Rest in peace, Sir. Godspeed.
