  • Schmeidi | Apr 25, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    OMG…I was the crazy girl calling you “hot legs” in Portsmouth on April 20th. You are awesome! Can someone post the playlist for that night? PLEASE!!

  • Todd Schneck | Apr 25, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    In My Next Life is my favorite Merle tune. I’ve played it about 20 times on my way to work this morning. Sadly, the radio stations did not play it when it came out in 1993. It is a Hag gem! The only place that I could find it was on his Down Every Road Anthology. If you are a Merle Haggard fan, look up In My Next Life. It is incredible. It resonates!

    • Schmeidi | Jul 6, 2012 at 2:52 pm

      Did you see Merle in Portsmouth, NH? Do you have a playlist? Trying to remember Johnny Cash song he did. Thx

  • Ray Lawrence Jr. | Apr 24, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    I have been a Merle Haggard fan since I was a little kid. My daddy would put those songs on the stereo a lot, now this was back in ’68 and it wasn’t till I was 10 years old, I went on a family trip to Texas and then in to Arkansas. This would be the last time I would ever see all 4 of my grand parents alive. My mommas daddy was a hobo back in the depression. The tape we had on the cassette player on that trip most of time was Same Train Different Time and I remember Mama Tried also being on another cassette. That was in 1973. Anyhow, the song Frankie and Johnny, with the best Telecaster guitar part ever played, was stuck in my head back then as well as Hobos Meditation.
    I got sent to a foster home in Taft, California for messin with some things best left alone. Anyhow, part of livin in Taft in that home was listening to Merle Haggard and Buck Owens too. Those prison songs got stuck in my head. Go to jail one time and some of those songs take on a whole different meaning. I know about that part. Anyhow, Merle has been a huge influence on me musically and is part of why I play country music today. Thank you Merle Haggard for the music you make and the influence you had in my life.

    Thank you,
    Ray Lawrence Jr.

  • Don Haze | Apr 24, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    Dear Merle, thanks for being a REAL American!

  • LEONARD | Apr 24, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    HEY MERLE, MY FAMILY AND I ARE FROM BELLA VISTA, AND YOU GAVE MY SON A TOY COWBOY FOR CHRISTMAS ONE YEAR AT THE SCHOOL. HE KEPT THAT FOR YEARS UNTIL OUR HOUSE BURNED DOWN IN THE JONES FIRE BACK IN 99 , JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT HE LOVED THAT TOY AND THANK YOU. MY AUNT LOIS USED TO DATE MARTY ROBINS BACK WHEN HE LIVED IN GLENDALE AZ. OF COURSE SHE REMEMBERS YOU AND SAYS HI.

  • Ray Sikora | Apr 22, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    Hi Merle,
    Really enjoyed the show last night in Atlantic City. Great selection of songs and the band was in fine tune. I talked to your steel guitar player after the show. What a great sound he had. He was a real gentleman too. God Bless, stay healthy! Ray

Been a fan since the late 70′s and my first show- Merle opened the first Farm Aid Concert in 85.Have also been fortunate enough to see him Last of The Breed with Ray Price& Willie,with Bob Dylan Show,with Brooks& Dunn in Bethel,N.Y.(Woodstock)and believe it or not open for Alan Jackson in 93′.Merle you are a very KIND & HUMBLE human being, not to mention any of your talent!!! You signed an album of yours for me and also allowed me to chat with you and shake your hand. You don’t have any idea how treasurable these memories will be ! Thanks also to Noel & Ben you guys are top shelf truely genuine people. Thanks also to Norm for the pickand the rest of the band for that Great Music! GOD BLESS each and everyone of you! You guys made me feel like a million bucks. P.S. Right now I’m trying to figure out how to get the money to see the shows in May in Vegas! Again Thanks and GOD BLESS YOU ALL !

    • ryan hilts | Apr 27, 2012 at 4:39 pm

      i was at the one in conn ,ive seen merle several times it made my day too. it was a awesome concert he sounded great along with the rest of the band . i was just wondering did i talk to you about merles guitar players right in front before the show started?

  • Caryn Vermilloin | Apr 21, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    I have tickets for the upcoming Tulsa concert–postponed from January–but to be honest I feel a little guilty after looking at this schedule! Geez. I’ve read both of Merles biographies, and I wish he could just retire and spend his time at home with his family! But then again, I’m so excited to see him again. I’m like the biggest Merle Haggard fan in the world, and I’ve only seen him in concert once before, in Tulsa 5 or 6 years ago. Been waiting for his concert schedule to coincide with my financial status. Just hope he realizes how much it means to me. I can’t afford to go to many concerts. But I WILL be there to see Merle this one time!!

  • Jay Rasbury | Apr 21, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Merle, My wife and I are truckers. She’s never seen you. Its been my pleasure a couple of times. Thanks for all you do. Please keep doing what you do for as long as you can…

    We are going to try to get to Sparks to see you this year. Can’t wait. Nancy, my wife is a recent country “convert fan” and absolutely LOVES your music.

    Best wishes Merle, hope we see you in Sparks,

    Jay

    Hi. My Mom and I came to your show in Annapolis and had a wonderful time. You and the band were great. My favorite songs are “If We Make It Through December” and “The Family Bible.”Thank you for all the songs and enjoyment you have brought everyone over the years. Also, thank you for singing “Folsom Prison Blues.” We miss Johnny Cash alot too. Take care. Michael

    I run a jamboree here in Grafton Ontario Canada and was wondering what it would take to get you up here next summer? Please let me know.
    Thanks Al

  • Steve Bynum | Apr 18, 2012 at 2:50 pm

    Saw Merle at the Ryman on April 11th. Most excellent! The guy still has it and it was impressive that two of his kids are involved with a true legend.

  • wayne | Apr 18, 2012 at 1:10 pm

  • Randy Fike | Apr 17, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    Mr. Haggard, I just want to thank you for your songs. They make me smile, laugh, reflect, and even shed a tear from time to time. You are a true artist and the feeling and presence that you express through your songs is sincere and heartfelt. I have been a fan longer than I can remember, I used to listen to you on KRAK Country here in California’s beautiful Central Valley when I was a kid. It’s hard to pick a single song to call my favorite, but if I had to, I would say it is “My Favorite Memory.” Thanks again!

  • Tracey H | Apr 17, 2012 at 5:17 am

    Looking forward to seeing you live tonight for the 1st time ever! My hubby and I will be in Shippensburg to celebrate his 40th birthday! Front row balcony! I’ve loved Merle ever since I was a little girl and heard “Santa Claus & Popcorn” for the 1st time!

  • Ed | Apr 16, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Just got home from Merle’s show at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Art’s. It was my first chance to see Mr. Haggard and I think he was great. Love Merle and your music.

  • Cliff Koon | Apr 16, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Merle, I saw you in Columbia, S.C. last night. It really brought back some memories and more than a few “happy” tears. I was in Viet Nam in 1968-69 and your music meant more to me than you will ever know. “Fightin Side of Me”, Okie from Muskogee”, “Hobo Bill”, and others kept me going during those years and even later when it seemed that noboby else really gave a hoot about us.
    I really enjoyed the show and was delighted to know that The Hag call still cut the mustard!

  • John Howell | Apr 16, 2012 at 8:41 am

    I was in attendance of Merle’s concert in Columbia, SC on April 15, 2012. I can honestly say this was one if not the best I have ever attended. It is unbelievable of the hit songs of Merle’s. He performed over an hour and a half and only one song was not his. This is unheard of and unmatched! Congratulations to a living legend, Merle Haggard.

    • Lester D. Thornton | Apr 17, 2012 at 11:47 am

      I am an ex paratrooper and have been a fan of Merle’s since the 60′s in 1967 0n my way back from Viet Nam in 67 , I met Merle at a studio next to RCA in Nashville and spent a while with him and a couple of other people while waiting on another artist that was listening to some of my songs. One of those songs was called The price of gasoline and i still have not recorded it. I saw Merle again at the River Dome in Louisiana at the River Dome a couple of years back when he was preforming with Willie and Ray Price. I left a CD of some of my songs at front with some of his people, I tried to see him but they would not let me get close. I am so glad he is improving and there will never be another as great as the Hag. Lester D.

  • Angela | Apr 15, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    Just saw Merle in Greensboro,NC last night…I wish the concert had lasted longer but I got to give it to the man he can put on one hell of a show !!! I love ya Merle ! Been listening to you all of my life and hope to see you back here real soon !! Keep doing what you do best ..that’s making the music you create that we all love so much !!!!Big hugs..love Angela

  • claudia hardcastle | Apr 15, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Merle, Seen your show friday at Bellterra Casino and I loved it. A friend of mine came up from Franklin, TN to go with me to see your show. I hope I can get to your show in Ohio, Columbus i think in June. Your the man Merle, they just don’t make em like you today. I love every song you sing and if I get to see another show I want my son to come with me he is like his mama he also likes your music.
    Love you Merle Haggard

  • Jeffrey | Apr 15, 2012 at 5:43 am

    I’m a big fan of Hag, & all these Other older artists, I’m 28 and live in Pittsburgh PA. I’m keeping real country alive in my heart! Your the best Hag!

  • Jenny | Apr 14, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    I just came from your concert in Greensboro,NC..I have bn listening to you for years but when i heard you were coming,,Iasked for tickets for Christmas and tht was the best surprise tht i got from by husband..I never thought he listened but was glad he did.. Hope to see you again.. and I love the HAG!!

  • Ernie R. | Apr 14, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Hello -
    I would like to echo Rick’s comments from the show in Greensboro. Merle is still giving it his all regardless of the time spent. We should be so lucky, however. Excellent show and keep up the good work! Best wishes to the Haggard fam.

  • Rick A. In NC | Apr 14, 2012 at 7:53 pm

    Just saw Merle tonite. He was great as always but has cut the time on stage way down. You will get about 30 mins of his son Noel and Merle comes out and plays back to back hits for a solid hour. Gotta give it up to the man. He’s 75 with a few health issues recently but still brought us to our feet. Loveya Merle.

    • donnasue | Apr 14, 2012 at 9:26 pm

      Was there also, Merle is the man and I was heart broken to only hear him for a hour.. but thanks you LORD that
      I did get to hear him for an hour!! WE LOVE YOU MERLE!!

  • Edward S | Apr 14, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    Whether or not this story gets to you, I would like to pass it along. My father was a huge fan of yours. I knew your name and music before I learned to read or write. A few months ago, I got one of your cd’s to listen to at work. Little did I know, but it would be rebirth of sorts. We listen to it just about every day. Well, my dad passed away about a month ago. Back at my folks house, my mom brought out a few of your records. We listened a lot and cried more. We ended up playing ‘That’s the Way Love Goes’ for the service. One of my dad’s lifelong friends was a guy named Pete and he told me that in the 60′s he did promotions in the Duluth, MN area and, as the story goes, he took my dad to meet you as you arrived for a concert. I never knew that, and it is just amazing that 35 years after hearing your voice for the first time, I would hear that story. So I would like to say simply, thank you for your music. It’s been a source for many memories recently and has helped us grieve. And to cap it all off, I just realized my wife and I share the same wedding anniversary with you, Sept 11, 1993. Perhaps you feel that same as I do, that those damn terrorists really screwed up that big day of the year.

  • Chris Martin | Apr 14, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    Would love to see you in Billings Montana on July 16th with Don Williams. That would be the top concert ever.

  • Michael Fesser | Apr 13, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Hi,
    as a big fan from Germany – is there the slightest chance of seeing you live here in old Europe, maybe even just for a short trip to Berlin? One of our radio stations presents great artists on small stages – almost private concerts with just about 1,000 people in the audience. We’ve already seen many great artists and singer/songwriters here, but one is still missing …
    I really hope to get a chance of seeing you live on stage.
    Best wishes.

  • Donna Lucas | Apr 13, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    Just wanted to let everyone know I just booked my tickets for Merle in Wendover, NV May 26, I cant wait see him. Went a few months ago to Kingsbury Hall in Utah and he was AWESOME.

  • teresa | Apr 12, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    Happy Happy Birthday Merle..your music has been a part of me my entire life …as my parents played you on their turntable on their arrival home (with me)………may you have many many many more Happy Birthdays!!

  • Teresa | Apr 12, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Happy Birthday wishes…I’m excited to see you in Columbia, SC on Sunday-you have been in my life since the moment I was born, as I am sure your music was on my parents’ turntable upon my moment home….your music has scripted my entire life!! Cheers~~

    • James Walton | Apr 18, 2012 at 5:46 pm

      There was Hank Sr., Lefty Frizzell, Ernest Tubb and Merle Haggard. Hag saw you at Maryland Hall this week and you knock it out of the park. Tried to get to your Bus to meet you but didn’t happen. Damm Body Guard should have whipped his ass. Said Hello to Norm and Don they will remember I was loud as hell. I’m 57 and have been listening to you since the beginnings I also collect Country Music video footage and its the largest in the state of Maryland. You are at the top of the list in my collection, still trying to get my hands on those old Buck Owens Shows you were on back in the day. Anyway Thank You Merle Haggard for all that great music and I will keep passing it on to other people who will get to discover you.
      The Jamester
