'Shaver' was a band that featured both Billy Joe Shaver and his son, Eddy. As the NY Times once wrote, "Shaver makes music to burn down the honky-tonks." They also did a number of utterly gut-wrenching ballads. The band made five studio albums between 1993 and 2000 when, tragically, Eddy passed away. These 17 tracks are culled from those records.
