Billy Joe Shaver. 2003. Waco, Texas © Allison V. Smith
Saw the movie Crazy Heart the other night and if you could see me now you'd see two thumbs up. Great acting & characters. Great story. Bad Blake reminded me of many people but especially Billy Joe Shaver whom they referenced with respect in the movie. I spent a day with Billy Joe a few years back. ( top 10 best photo assignment from my days at the Dallas Morning News.) After spending a morning of shooting and talking, he bought me a cheeseburger at the Health Camp on the circle. I'll remember that day forever.
