A treasured memory of my youth – Merle Haggard has died today at the age of 79 years of age.

An outlaw…..a renegade and a hero – the music of Merle Haggard served as the back drop to my youth….always there, behind a myriad of fond memories of home.

      These guys are great. I grew up listening to all of them! Many a night asleep in the back seat of Mom ‘n Dads car on the way home from some shindig or another. Great music. Great memories. Great times.
