Live Music

Billy Joe Shaver

When: Fri., Jan. 22, 8:30 p.m. 2016

Long in the tooth and short in fingers, Shaver has crafted impeccable tales of good ol' boy debauchery, heartache and humility for decades. He is one of Texas' most brilliant songwriters and the last beacons of a bygone era of foolhardy, headstrong swagger and confidence. The old five and dimer born in Corsicana has, by now, surely become the diamond that lived inside that old lump a' coal.
