"He had great perception powers. That’s what a songwriter is, somebody who sees and makes the world work. I love Billy Joe’s songwriting, and the way he looks at life. He’s a true poet who harkens back to some of the great musical forms. If you listen to “Honky Tonk Heroes,” it’s classic ragtime, but he doesn’t know that. He just knows what he knows."
- Ray Benson from Live Forever: The Songwriting Legacy of Billy Joe Shaver
