I met my father when I was 19 and one of the things we bonded over was music. We’d spend hours driving the country roads around his place, listening to Billy Joe Shaver. My dad knew every word of his songs by heart and would recite them like poems. RIP, and thank you

There are too many legendary Billy Joe Shaver stories out there to list, but one of my favorites has always been how he got Waylon Jennings to listen to his songs that would eventually become the album Honky Tonk Heroes (and probably my favorite country album, period).

With heavy hearts, we grieve the loss of Billy Joe Shaver, who passed away today at 81. He was one of the most respected figures in American music and his #songwriting has been recognized by numerous organizations including an induction into our 2008 TxHSA Hall of Fame.

Saddened to hear this. He recorded the Squidbillies theme, in a church studio outside Austin! Gave our show attitude from the get. Check out Waylon Jennings’ “Honky Tonk Heroes”. Or his “Tales from the Tour Bus” ep by @MikeJudge. A true American original. RIP Billy Joe Shaver.

Sad to hear the about the passing of Billy Joe Shaver. One of my favorite songwriters of all time. I was lucky enough to open for him a few times & also co-wrote one song with him. I last saw him at the airport. Rest high & glad you will get to see Eddy again! #RIPBillyJoe

RIP, Billy Joe Shaver. It was a great honor to have him grace our stage 5 times at RCC, including when the NYT was covering his life for a week. Great tribute to him by REK in an album of covers of him, where REK covers Bottom Dollar & tells a great story of meeting him.

Oh no! Man BJS was so good. I have Like 15 play lists and he’s in 10 of em. Looks like his song “live forever” has come true. ❤️RT @SIRIUSXM: Rest in peace to Outlaw Country legend Billy Joe Shaver, who has died at the age of 81.

One of the original outlaws of country music, Billy Joe Shaver recorded the Squidbillies theme for us in a church outside of Austin. He was a genius songwriter, had a great sense of humor and gave our show instant credibility. RIP Billy Joe Shaver.

This morning we got the news that our friend, Billy Joe Shaver, has passed away at the age of 81. When we think of Billy Joe Shaver, we cant help but smile, laugh, and reminisce on almost 40 years of friendship.

Another great Texas music icon is gone. Billy Joe Shaver was a bona fide, certified, Lone Star original – a throwback to a far different time. This was echoed in the music he wrote and performed over a long and very adventurous life.

“By most accounts, even Willie’s, Billy Joe was the greatest. ‘Billy Joe is definitely the best writer in Texas,’ says the braided one. By most accounts, he was also the craziest.”

RIP Billy Joe Shaver.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
