RIP Merle Haggard: Country Music Lost a Legend

Advertisements

79 years to the day.

We were blessed to have him for 79 years to the day.

On his 79th birthday, country music legend and American icon Merle Haggard passed away after a tough battle with complications that arose after taking ill with pneumonia.

With over three dozen number one hits to his record, Merle has been the epitome of what old school country music was and where country music had the power to go in the future. Without a doubt, there is no musician that has come since Merle hit the scene that was not in some way influenced by his life, his style, or his music. (And that goes across all genres.)

The man who spent his formidable years growing up in a converted boxcar showed the grit, the ugly, and the glory of day to day life in America. His music, as well as his spirit, will go on forever. But for today, we mourn his passing and thank the Lord that he blessed us with Mr. Haggard for 79 wonderful years.

Rest in peace, sir. And thank you!
