Merle Haggard Has Died

2016 has been a tough year for celebrities. Today one of the singers that I remember listening to growing up died on his 79th birthday – Merle Haggard. He was know for pioneering the Bakersfield Sound along with Buck Owens.  The list of songs that I remember are:

  • Mamma Tried
  • If We Make It Through December
  • Okie from Musgokie
  • The Fighting Side of Me
  • Silver Wings (the one I’ve chosen for today’s post

Most of these are memories from my childhood days.
