Lee Clayton

Lee Clayton (born Billy Shotts; October 29, 1942) is an American rock and country musician and composer. His style has been described as in between rock and country. Clayton grew up in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and began to play harmonica and guitar at the age of 7. At 9 he received his first steel guitar. After quitting the Air Force he moved to Nashville in 1968 and began his career as a songwriter. His first success was the song “Ladies Love Outlaws”, which became a Number 11 hit in the Billboard Charts by Waylon Jennings in 1972. The country music style outlaw country was derived from that song. In 1973 he released his first album simply titled Lee Clayton, with which, as Clayton would later say, he was very dissatisfied. In the following years he continued his songwriting.
