In addition to selling 40 million records and producing chart-topping hits like "She's All I Got" and "Take This Job and Shove It," country music outlaw Johnny Paycheck became notorious for living the part. He was known for his music, grand theft auto, drug binges and stints in jail. At the height of Paycheck's fame, he shot a man over a turtle soup recipe, which led to a high-profile trial, a prison sentence and one of his greatest hits, "Old Violin."
