The String Cheese Incident Covers Billy Joe Shaver’s ‘Honky Tonk Heroes’ In 2013: Pro-Shot Video
The String Cheese Incident shared pro-shot video of Billy Joe Shaver’s “Honky Tonk Heroes” in honor of the outlaw country legend who died yesterday. The clip comes from SCI’s 2013 run at The Backyard outside of Austin in Shaver’s home state of Texas.
Shaver’s “Honky Tonk Heroes” was first recorded by Waylon Jennings in 1973 for Jennings’ album of the same name, which was largely made up of Billy Joe Shaver songs. The Cheese version sees guitarist Bill Nershi leading the band through the tune which fittingly features a little honky tonk piano from keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth.
