Remembering Merle Haggard, Dead At 79

April 6, 2016

Merle Haggard died today from the illness that had plagued him off and on over the past year.

The White House called Haggard a “legend” and said President Barack Obama was sending his thoughts and prayers to Haggard’s family. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Haggard told stories that people from all walks of American life could relate to.

“His passing is a loss for country music, but obviously is a loss for all the people who got to know him personally, too,” Earnest said.

My favorite song from this amazing singer goes way back to when I was boy.
