Merle Haggard just died of double pneumonia on his birthday! yikes. how strange to go on your birthday. I do remember loving so many of his songs back when I was a big country music fan late 70's, early 80's. been a long time since I heard any comparable music in country songs. what an interesting life the guy had. never read his bio till now. Did you ever like his music? I think I liked "the fightin' side of me" best. back when I still believed in our country.

That's very sad news, he was one of my favorites and, one of the last alive from that era in country music. I think now only Willie is left.

His son posted that Hag said a week ago he would die on his birthday. Yes, I'm a big Merle Haggard fan.

To pass on one's birthday is poetic if you think about it.
