MERLE HAGGARD IS A COUNTRY MUSIC LEGEND IN HIS OWN TIME. MERLES LEGENDARY STATUS WAS EMPHASIZED IN 1994 WHEN HE WAS INDUCTED INTO THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME. MERLES LIFE HAS NOT ALWAYS BEEN EASY.

IN 1960, MERLE WAS PAROLED FOR GOOD BEHAVIOR AND SET HIS SIGHTS FOR HIGHER GROUND. HE SOON FOUND IT. MERLE HAGGARD RECORDED NO LESS THAN 40 #1 HIT RECORDINGS.
