Billy Joe Shaver
- The Man: This outlaw country singer has been penning tunes since the 1970s, but he’s not exactly a household name—unless you’re a member of the Jennings, Nelson, Presley, or Kristofferson households. After all, he wrote some of their biggest hits.
- The Myth: Shaver has lived the kind of life most country stars dream of, with highlights including having to learn how to play guitar all over again after losing two fingers to a lumber mill, accidentally finding his way to Nashville to start his musical career while hitchhiking to California, and releasing a new album every couple of years since 1973.
- The Music: Besides his own hits such as “I Been to Georgia on a Fast Train” and “I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal,” he wrote Elvis’s “You Asked Me To” and nearly all of Waylon Jenning’s album Honky Tonk Heroes.
