Yep...Billy Joe was in my “top 10” favs. He and Jerry Jeff helped shape and influence Texas country music into what it is today. I’ll sure miss him.

They replayed interviews he did with Terry Gross some years ago on her Fresh Air program today. I learned a lot about him. He was quite a songwriter. Some songs of his I liked when I heard someone’s cover of it, but at the time didn’t know he was the writer. RIP.

Billy Joe Shavers rest in peace.

He sure did write some classics.
