Honky Tonk Heroes is an album by Waylon Jennings, released in 1973 on RCA Victor. With the exception of the tenth and final track, all of the songs on the album were originally written or co-written by Billy Joe Shaver, who helped shape Jennings' movement in the direction of outlaw country. The record was largely produced by Jennings himself, with some of the production handled by Tompall Glaser, and reached #14 on the country charts; "You Asked Me To" and "We Had It All" became successful singles, peaking at #8 and #28, respectively. The liner notes, describing initial mistrust and tension between Jennings and Shaver as well as the emotion that went into each song on the record, were written by Roger "Captain Midnight" Schutt, a radio personality who was also pictured on the album's cover.
