Merle Haggard - What a legend! What an incredible performer!
And as Guest Lin said, "100% different then what you hear today."
I guess I am from the old school of country music too and so much of what you hear these days by the young country singers is really different - and not in a good way for the most part.
I do like Dolly Parton but not Shaina (sp?) Twain country music.

Hey Lin, I will be in the Bakersfield area later this year.
If you can recommend (name the restaurants) or other places to see please post. I do hope to visit the Buck Owens Museum & restaurant while there. Another great legend from Bakersfield!

RIP Merle Haggard.
