    Check out Sturgill Simpson……..Long White line. He is the living Merle Haggard.

    Good stuff indeed. I would call it ‘outlaw country’. Definitely not the horny 16 yr old syrup fresh from Nashville.

      Aye the modern stuff masquerading as “country music” isn’t much good. To put it politely. The older guys, the “outlaw country” guys were the real deal.

    I’ll change your flat tire Merle….pure Prairie League….Vince Gill’s homage to Merle

    Well Daymmn! That one’s even easy enough to strum on the first try! Yet another classic for my guitar repertoire. That’s like 4 songs now! ;-)

    Here’s one of the greatest songs ever written. Can you imagine sitting down one evening, having a cup of coffee, thinking a bit, then coming up with this …

    I’ve got loads of Merle’s stuff, right from a 1968 recording of him playing live in Muskogie, to Merle’s last ever song … Merle Haggard was one of the greatest human beings ever to draw breath, and that’s all there is about it.
