Country legend Merle Haggard dies at 79

strange that I would be first to make this, but it looks like 2016 claims another one.

R.I.P. Merle. R.I.P.


2016 officially the worst year ever

Fucking hell.

RIP Merle.

My dad was a country singer and he used to do a few Haggard tunes. This one in particular I really love

Merle was kind of an unlikely star. He wasn’t very good at playing to the audience when he was coming up, but a lot of that worked to his advantage later on and he wound up being considered cool because of it. Sad day in Nashville here, one more of the greats passing away. 2016 not giving a fuck.

Also, yesterday (the day he died) was his birthday.
