RIP Merle Haggard

He was going to do a show with Jason Isbell in Macon, but it was cancelled. I guess we know why.

He was pretty good on The Walking Dead.
Virtually everything GOP critics have told us would follow from the policies put in place has not come to pass. You would think that this would occasion a few mea culpas, some rethinking, an admission of poor prognostication. But, alas, it continues.

I always liked him w/other people as well as on his own. He actually saw one of Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison concerts
as a prisoner. Is that authentic outlaw enough for your ass?

I don't think I've ever purposefully listened to one of his songs all the way through.

Ol' Marty got some shit for being a pretty boy during his heyday, but he's a talented dude.

I know he is way twangy for some folks, even me sometimes, but he has a couple of killer guitar players in his band and has a GREAT voice. I've only seen him once and there was a little too much gospel in the show for my $$, but they are great live.

Anyway, this is about Merle and he also sang on one of Peter Wolf's recent albums. They did a song called It's Too Late For Me and it is GREAT. Can't find it on Youtube.
