Billy Joe Shaver has never been a household name, but his songs became country standards during the '70s and his reputation among musicians and critics hasn't diminished during the ensuing decades. As a Texas Country Music Hall of Famer, Shaver is truly one of the most respected living figures in American music. Bob Dylan, who rarely covers other writers, has often played Billy Joe's "Old Five And Dimers Like Me" in concert. Johnny Cash called him "my favorite songwriter." TheWashington Post noted, "when the country outlaws were collecting their holy writings, Billy Joe Shaver was carving out Exodus."
