Born in a tree house, killed in a friend’s living room, and 86’d from his own funeral Blaze Foley is now a bona fide Texas legend. His songs are covered by Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, John Prine, Lyle Lovett, Nanci Griffith, The Avett Brothers, and Ryan Bingham. Lucinda Williams' "Drunken Angel" and Townes Van Zandt's "Blaze's Blues" are both loving tributes to Foley. The Kings of Leon cite Blaze as inspiration for their song "Reverend."
