No!!! Man, another great gone. I had the privilege of sitting and listening to him tell stories for an hour one time. We talked about his friendship with Johnny Cash and many other things. He was really kind to me. Be at rest Merle. #ripmerlehaggard #merlehaggard
After my run I saw the news on Merle Haggard and my first thought was Willie. My heart skipped a beat and I teared up. For those that truly know me know my love of Willie. & As Willie put it he lost a brother.
Thank you for all you gave us Merle! May you rest in peace. I know you will be carrying on above with all the other greats that we have lost yet live in us.

Such a legend in music. My dad was able to see this man twice in 2003 while I was in Iraq. My dad informed Merle of this and Merle asked for my address. I received a autographed photo and letter one day while sitting in the sand box from the Hag. A few months later my dad saw him again in concert and he asked my dad how I was doing, then proceeded to send me an autographed cd. I had tickets twice to see this man an both times he had to cancel due to illness. I don't mourn publicly often for loss of public figures but this one hits home. Myself and the world of music lost a true song writer and music legend. I'm dedicating today's playlist to the Hag. 'My hat don't hang on the same nail too long
My ears can't stand to hear the same old song
An' I don't leave the highway long enough to bog down in the mud
'Cos I've got ramblin' fever in my blood'
