Merle Haggard RIP

6.4.16



Outlaw country legend, Merle Haggard passed away on his 79th birthday, on April 6th 2016 after a series of health issues, mainly pneumonia which he had been battling for months.

From juvie to outlaw to country legend status, Merle Haggard lived a full life as a star, escaped cancer and left behind a huge legacy and a vast discography, including many collaborations.

His conservative anti-hippie anthem, Okie From Muskogee that he released in the heart of the war in Vietnam made him a hero in the eyes of every American patriot, reached #1 in Billboard's Country Singles chart and became one of his many classics.
