COVER NOTES:



MERLE HAGGARDS TRADITIONAL COUNTRY SOUND KEEPS HIM IN DEMAND. IT IS MERLES CLASSIC STYLE WHICH SET THE STANDARD THAT MADE HIM A LEGEND IN HIS OWN TIME. PART OF MERLES TIMELESS APPEAL IS THE FACT THAT HIS MUSIC HAS ALWAYS REFLECTED THE EXPERIENCES OF A LIFETIME. HE WAS BORN IN A BOXCAR CONVERTED INTO A HOME IN BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA. HIS FATHER DIED WHEN MERLE WAS ONLY NINE YEARS OLD. AS MERLE GREW UP HE WAS SOMEWHAT OF A REBELLIOUS SORT, WHICH RESULTED IN A TUMULTUOUS CHILDHOOD. WHEN HE GOT OLDER, A SERIES OF MINOR RUN-INS WITH THE LAW EVENTUALLY LANDED HIM IN SAN QUENTIN PRISON. WHILE IN PRISON, MERLE PLAYED IN THE WARDENS BAND. HE ALSO HAPPENED TO BE SERVING HIS SENTENCE WHEN JOHNNY CASH PERFORMED HIS FAMOUS SAN QUENTIN PRISON CONCERT. MERLE WAS A MODEL PRISONER AND WAS SOON PAROLED IN 1960. THE SOON-TO-BE FAMOUS EX-CON BEGAN WORKING VARIOUS JOBS AND PLAYING HONKY-TONK CLUBS AROUND BAKERSFIELD. THE SONGS THAT MERLE WRITES OFTEN REFLECT THE RUGGED, DIVERSE LIFE THAT HE LIVED. HIS FANS ALWAYS SEEM TO ENJOY SHARING THOSE EXPERIENCES THROUGH HIS MUSIC. IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE MERLE HAGGARDS TALENTS AS A SINGER, SONGWRITER AND MUSICIAN PAID OFF. HE RECORDED HIS FIRST TOP- 10 HIT IN 1965 MY FRIENDS ARE GONNA BE STRANGERS. IN THE YEARS THAT FOLLOWED, MERLE COMPILED OVER THIRTY #1 HITS. ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR WAS HIS 1969 HIT, OKIE FROM MUSKOGEE. IN THE EYES OF HIS FANS, THIS SIGNATURE SONG IS NOW A MERLE HAGGARD CLASSIC THAT DEFINES THE HAGS PERSONA. IT IS INCLUDED IN THIS COLLECTION OF SONGS BY ONE OF THE BEST TRADITIONAL COUNTRY SINGER EVERMERLE HAGGARD!
