Billy Joe Shaver, almost 70, releases first gospel album

VETERAN country man Billy Joe Shaver, who in the past has written songs recorded by such acts as Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley and Kris Kristofferson, has recorded his first gospel album at the age of almost 70. The project, 'Everybody's Brother', features guest appearances from such artists as Kristofferson, Marty Stuart, John Anderson, Tanya Tucker and even the late Johnny Cash. The CD was produced by John Carter Cash and is described by Christian Retailing magazine as a "sawdust-on-the-floor, toe-tapping, honky-tonk album that is nothing short of brilliant." CR
