Billy Joe Shaver Death & Cause
Billy Joe Shaver, a contributor to the 1970s “outlaw country” movement and the man Willie Nelson once called “the greatest living songwriter,” passed away Wednesday, October 28th, 2020. He was 81. Shaver died of a stroke at Waco, Texas’ Ascension Providence Hospital, Variety reported.
The Texas native became a name in country music with his 1973 debut album, “Old Five and Dimers Like Me,” now a classic of the outlaw country genre that emerged in response to country music’s commercialization at the time.
