Billy Joe Shaver - Long in the Tooth
Billy Joe Shaver's finest songs prowl and punch with welterweight fury. Shaver's first studio album in six years showcases a songwriter in peak form as he unearths his trademark truths around every corner. 'This is the best album I've ever done,' he says.
Long in the Tooth charts his journey as an unrepentant outlaw. Accordingly, Shaver delivers the classic country fans expect. 'Songwriting is gut wrenching, but if you dig down and write real honest you'll find something real great. I believe everybody should write. It's the cheapest psychiatrist there is and, God knows, I still need one.'
