Vale Merle Haggard

It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of Merle Haggard at the age of 79. Merle had been fighting a battle with pneumonia which would ultimately claim his life…. he had many number ones with songs like “Okie from Muskogee” and “Mama Tried”.

In closing, I say Rest In Peace and share this version of Okie from Muskogee with Marty Stuart and Willie Nelson:
