V1 Roots ~ Merle Haggard
V1 Roots ~ Merle Haggard
Considering the fact that nearly every artist out there singing quality country music cites Merle Haggard as an influence, it is hard to remember that the Hag had to come from somewhere, too. It is hard to imagine that Merle Haggard was once a kid who had to be influenced. We know for a fact he was as he has been incredibly open about his past as a resident of San Quentin in the California prison system. We know he was a wild, restless kid. People can deal with Merle Haggard being a kid, but it's hard to believe that he wasn't born with a guitar in his hand, a little hat on his head and deep vibrating vocal cords molded by cigarettes and whiskey.
