The spirit of the Hag definitely lives on!
Country Music legend, Merle Haggard, passed away earlier this year on his 79th birthday. Rumours persist that Merle’s family is sitting on top of a massive amount of unreleased music from the Hag.
They’ve chosen to share the final song Haggard put to tape as a way to thank fans for the outpouring of goodwill received after his passing. “Kern River Blues”, recorded this past February, is a letter to his hometown…but certainly not a love letter, give the snippet a listen below!
Available for purchase from Haggard’s website, 10% of the proceeds from this song will be donated to homeless charities.
