Merle Haggard is 75-years-old today! On what should be a national holiday!!! I can remember riding in my dad (Captain Morgan's) baby blue, short bed, Chevy pick-up hearing my first taste of country music through the speakers from the 8 track player, screwed under the dash.  When I think country, I ALWAYS think of Merle Haggard!!!

Merle has released almost 40 No. 1 hits, but a number of his biggest hits — like the 1982 ACM Song of the Year ‘Are the Good Times Really Over’ — never even reached the top. WOW!!

What is YOUR all time favorite song from 'the poet of the common man'
