Shaver, Friedman Team Up

Billy Joe Shaver, who lost his son and guitarist, Eddy Shaver, to a heroin overdose on New Year’s Eve, will perform a string of dates with fellow Texas songwriter and author Kinky Friedman in their home state. Billed as “The Two Moving Parts Tour,” the string of dates will take the duo to Austin’s Broken Spoke on Jan. 31, San Antonio’s Carlsbad Tavern on Feb. 2, San Marcos’ Cheatham Street Warehouse on Feb. 3, Houston’s McGonigal’s Mucky Duck on Feb. 5 and Dallas’ Poor David’s Pub on Feb. 6. The concerts will lay the groundwork for an extended tour in the fall.
