Watching Merle Haggard I Wonder ‘Who’s The Next Legend?’

Merle Haggard put on an excellent show Tuesday night at The Centre, in what could be the last time we get to see him perform in the Tri-State.  As he went through his endless number of hits, I got to thinking, 'What's next for country music?'  I don't have a problem with the evolution of country.  I like the new stuff.  I like the old stuff.  What I don't see is iconic figures like Merle making a career like him.  So, who's next?

One You Might’ve Missed – David Kersh ‘Another You’

In the mid 90's, when so many new, young, male artists were coming out, it was hard to keep track of them.  I think that was what sealed the fate of David Kersh, a super-talented artist, that just kind of faded into the background of too many new singers.  One single that made it to number 3, but went into country music obscurity shortly after was 'Another You,' a song written by a then unknown songwriter named Brad Paisley.
