Remembering Merle Haggard

April 6, 2016

I woke up this morning to the sad news that country legend Merle Haggard had passed away -- on his birthday -- at the age of 79. Merle was legendary in many ways: after a youth of petty crime and riding the rails, he built a 53 year music career studded with 38 #1 hits. His influence truly shaped the country music coming out today. He is already missed.

Here's just a small taste of his absolutely amazing catalog.
