Turn It All On Once More

Time to sing him back home I guess. Just got the sad news that country giant Merle Haggard died yesterday, on the day of his birth. He was 79. Along with Buck Owens, the Hag originated that golden Bakersfield sound, and later was an important part of the much-lauded outlaw movement. He was one of the true greats, and wrote a ton of great songs. Miss him.
