Monday, July 14 / Village Idiot
74-year old Texas country music singer and songwriter Billy Joe Shaver is an unsung hero of the outlaw country genre. Between ghost writing tunes for Waylon Jennings and Elvis Presley while creating a successful solo career, Shaver is a hard-working musician whose talent has awarded him an induction into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. On Monday, July 14, Shaver will roll into the Village Idiot for a set of rockin’ country standards spanning the length of his career. Shaver has recorded with legendary musicians like Willie Nelson, Nanci Griffith, Chuck Leavell and Dickey Betts, so expect some surprise covers as well.
