Here is a new feature here where I will be posting some kind of vaguely religious song every Sunday morning for all you sinners and repenters out there alike. I was going to kick this off last Sunday and tie it in to the 4th of July Picnic by posting Willie’s essential version of Amazing Grace. Of course you guys probably all know that song anyway. So I will go with a song off Billy Joe Shaver’s 2007 “gospel” album Everybody’s Brother. This song is classic Shaver and features Marty Stuart trading verses with Billy Joe.
I also chose this song cause Billy Joe Shaver did win his court case in which he shot a man in the face in a bar outside of Waco and was found not guilty. Keep singing about Jesus Billy Joe…I think it’s working out for you.

In Honor of my favorite show on saturday nights, I present to you a recording of one of my favorite episodes of Austin City Limits.
Recorded in 1996, this honky tonk supergroup gave us a performance much like what you would expect this gathering to sound like on any one of their front porches. They sit around joking singing songs back and forth, trading licks….trying to one up the next guy. Highlights on this disc include well all of it, but specifically the middle part where they play a game of one upmanship with spiritual songs, the all-together sing along of “on the road again”, and my favorite…..Waylon’s “I’d have been out of jail”. Give it a listen or two.
