Review quote

Merle is an American original classic legend. He's every singer-songwriter's hero. He's a great singer. I asked George Jones who his favorite singer was, and he said Merle Haggard. God really blessed ol' Merle. He's the real deal! -- Alan Jackson When I started to have to deal with all those things that have to do with real life, that's when Merle's music started to make sense to me." -- Emmylou Harrisshow more
