Congratulations are in order for honky-tonk hero Billy Joe Shaver, whose lifelong run of hard luck and heartache has been documented in his canon of country music masterpieces. Shaver married Wanda Lynn Canady on Friday, October 13 in Las Vegas. Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top's bearded front man, presided over the ceremony.
This marks the second time Shaver has married Canady. He married his late wife Brenda on three separate occasions.
Shortly after the wedding, Shaver cracked a vertebra while "Indian Wrestling" with a friend. Shaver is expected to make a full recovery.
