Today (April 6th) marks one year since Merle Haggard passed away on his birthday!!!! *Sigh* I remember my colleague walking into the studio to convey the sad news knowing how big of a Merle Haggard fan I am and I wept like I had lost a long time friend!!! Well to me he was!! I listened to Merle every since I can remember...the undeniable voice that sang the songs that provided a soundtrack for a major part of my life. No doubt, when he died last year on his 79th birthday, it was a TREMENDOUS loss to music, not JUST country music!
It is SO hard to pick JUST ONE of my favorites because ANYTHING Merle did I was a fan of but I am especially fond of this one from 1983
