Inspired by Merle Haggard
Chatty tales about your lover walking out the door? Thoughtful and reverent soul-searching ballads? Rebellious, rumbling honky-tonk? Straight-no-chaser drinking tunes? You can bet Hag had ‘em all—and his legacy lives on in the music of his contemporaries, his compadres, and his new-school devotees who fill this playlist.
