    Merle, I have got to be your biggest fan ever. I think the first concert I went to was in Muskogee in 67 or 68. I could not begin to count how many over the years. I have every song you have ever sang. my favorite has got to be Chillfactor. I have tried to get your autograph for so many years. Wish you would do an autograph session at your concert on April 3 at the Grand Casino in Shawnee, ok. Your concerts are awesome. look forward to seeing you on stage. Your music is timeless. Thanks for all the years of great music. radio would not be radio without you.

    I caught your show in poplar bluff, mo. I had a sign to show you, but I chickened out at the last minute. My wife got ticked because I didn’t hold up the sign she made for me which read A song with you, A dream come true. I have regretted that to this day. I think if I could have had a couple of beers , I might have done it. I have listened & bought all your songs since 1968. One day maybe i’ll get to meet you if I live long enough& maybe get to sing with you also.
    Thank You,

    I just want to say thank you for real country music!!!! I mean no disrespect to the so called country artist of today but this is not country music that you merle and so many of the legends of country gave to our parents and they instilled that in us. I caught the best show i ever been to out in Spokane washington it was you and kris Kristofferson thank you for that. The legends are almost gone its so sad the country sound is so different and it will never be the same again. My God that is so sad. I have spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on a cd collection so i will alwsys have that real music but seeing waylen and jessie, george jones, jim reeves,bobby bare,roy clark,johnny and june cash,connie smith,conway twitty and i could keep going and going and going but my god how i would like to see these people just once but was not meant to be. So thanks to merle, Kris, willie, and george straight for keeping on bringing us the music i no you guys are not as young as you were but the show i saw in spokane a few years ago merle you and kris but one hell of a show that i will never forget. I MISS COUNTRY MUSIC PLEASE GOD BRING BACK THAT GREAT SOUND. MUCH LOVE TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY MERLE THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE YEARS OF GREAT MUSIC!!!!!!

    Dearest Merle, I ‘m only 70th age in my land in Sardinia island in Italy, a two yars ago, before I were goin blind, I pluck up courage and I gone to the hospital to”” clean and change my eyes”,: now, by my news eyes I can read in computer, all about you, your life and your songs, so now, hearing music and reading the lyrics, finally, I can try to sing some your songs, (I finish to sing (joking) wen I married in 1970). So I need to tell you that in the moment I love and try to sing two of your songs: Lonesome fuggitive and sing me back home and I’m sure that who Is so lucked tho hear these songs and to go into them, can belive that the good times are not really over for good. A last thing I want you now is that everytime i hear you singin back home, I need to cry.
    I send you my best regards
    Arturo schivo

    Hello Merle, We saw you about 20 years ago in Branson, Missouri, and damn if we weren’t fans for life. The way you effortlessly entertain us is amazing- We still listen to you all the time here in Switzerland. Every time we come to the States, we find a new CD of yours. The last trip to Louisiana and Texas we found a live CD, Live at Billy Bob’s. Being from Switzerland, and separate from the rest of Europe, we felt absolutely at home in Texas. My husband heard a quote of yours about the songs of today “Where are the songs (text)” and we heartily agree. We will be fans for life. Thank you for making us so happy (your music has that effect). Love you, Carol & Marcel Wild

    merle , if I had only one wish in my life it would be to met you in person. I’ve been a fan of yours sense I got your first album “The Strangers” back in 1967. ( my name is gilbert, I live now in gig harbor , Washington.) I’ve had every album sense, but through the years some has been lost, misplaced or stolen. I have your tapes/cds in my car/home and listen to them every day. you are the Artist. gil

    Merle,
    I am just about as old as you, so you can tell I have been a long time fan. As I recently came upon an LA Times 2012 article regarding you and President Obama, I would like to briefly comment. Your support of the President and comments regarding the unwarranted and outright hostility to our President was commendable.
    Thank you for being not only a great performer but also a great American. hal wison

    Meral has been my favoriate singer since i was born yu could say since he was my dad’s & my dad use to play the guitar and hw would make me sing with him since he had trouble remembering the words & the family was never going to know that.I think it had more to do with the alcholal but who knows.I have been waiting most of my life to get a chance to see meral in concert my & i were going to go together if we were to get a chance but he has past on now so someday i hope to get a chance to see him for my dad & i. It would mean the world to me if i could finally see him in person but he never comes to upstate new your and i live in sanborn ny.I can travel to go see him its not in the cards so i keep watching is tour dates to see if by chane one of these years if he will make it up to this area so i can finally make along time dream come true.I have never been able to get over my stage freight so they were never able to get me to sing in front of a crowd but them talent swouts tried for half my life to get me to sign my sould to the deveil who knew maybe if i did maybe i could have made my dream to see meral to come true.Well we will see since yes no one is ever getting any younger and some of us like me have woke up one day and to have are lifes as we know it shattered are bodies will never work the way it used to because we suffered so much abuse growing the damage cant be fully fixed but im going to stay postive that someday i will get to see meral in concert & that will make all my dreams finally come true.

    Dear Merle,

    I caught your show here in Omaha on February 26th! The show was great as always! I have seen you perform many times and have never been to a bad show! Thanks for all the great songs and music you have given us! I never get tired of hearing you sing and play the guitar! Your son is a great guitar player, too! Thanks for all the great music, Merle! God bless!

      Was a logger back in early 1970’s and was always alone and sometimes not see a soul till I went back to town, but those nights way back in the middle of nowhere I had a radio and would be able at certain times to pick up this one station who played merle’s songs , he made every evening sound like I was at concert,will love MERLE FOREVER. Made a lonely life come alive every night in that log shack , THANKS MERLE FROM RON.

    My husband and I are going to board some silver wings from Seattle to OKC to see your show in Shawnee, siince you won’t be making it up to the Pacific Norhtwest this tour and you aren’t getting any younger like the rest of us. We have both wanted to see you in concert and decided to stop making excuses and just take the time off to just do it….It will be worth every penny! I am a Kansas girl and my husband is from MO. We both grew up listening to your music. My father held you, Willie, Waylan and Johnny at such a high regard that I grew up thinking that you men were my family, thus I refer to you as Uncle Merle. I’ll be throwin’ horse shoes over my right shoulder in hopes to meet you in person during our trip. Thanks Uncle Merle for all the pleasure your music has brought to our lives! We cannot wait to see you “live”!

    I have to say I love merle haggard music, but my brother takes it a little further than me. He heard merle was coming to the uptown theatre in kcmo and decided merle tickets were more important than his electric bill. He now has no electricity but does have a smile on his face and a memory to last a lifetime.

    Merle & all the Strangers . . . .

    Great concert in Omaha, NE tonight. It was great to see you again and enjoyed all your songs. I have been a fan since the 60’s and your music has been a source of inspiration and entertainment over all the years. The best to you, your family, and all the Strangers.
