    Default Merle Haggard born today 76 years ago

    True artist. Hard to believe he's 76. If you get a chance to see him live don't miss it.

    My all time favorite! My wife surprised me with tickets to see him in 08,it was the best show I've ever seen! He looked worn,week,and weathered, but boy he sure sounded good!
    Not many singer/songwriters can stay relevant through 6 decades! Hats off Merle! Happy Birthday!

    His vinyl, especially on the Epic label is outstanding. The mans voice is legendary.

    That's where i'm at! I'm fully hetrosexual,but I just cant get enough of Merle's voice! The passion in which he portrays in his music is legendary! His 16 Greetest hits album is my alltime favorite album! Listening to "Going Where The Lonely Go" is a song That is on par with a "Celine Dion" IMHO,as well as "Hungry Eyes","Silver Wings",Ect,Ect. Where else can we find a man that writes his own music,and then display it as well as Merle does!
    THERE! Done with my Merle Man Crush! Let the flaming start

    Pick up: Big City, Kern River, both are outstanding recordings. I'm not a huge Country Music fan, but Merle is the man. His albums are some of the best recordings you'll ever hear, everything is centered around that voice, which is always front, center stage.

    An amazing talented artist though truly an icon of CW music lots of respect for the man here.

    Well, I just pulled off the impossible by doing a double-blind comparison all by myself, purely by virtue of the fact that I completely and stupidly forgot what I did last. I guess that getting old does have its advantages after all :D

    One of the last true lovers of Western Swing music. Merle's always been a true patriot, thanks for supporting freedom.
