    Love your music, as a soldier I have carried your voice every where with me. Thats right from the deserts of iraq and then some. You should come to Whiteman Air Force Base and sing to us military folks. I will meet you at the gate and we can head down to the lake and do an inpromptu concert. What do you say, Just an idea, keeps everyone on their toes.

  • Corey | Feb 5, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    Im Ready for some more new Music from you Merle :o)

  • Grant Thomas | Feb 5, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    Mr. Haggard you have played and wrote the music that has shaped my life. Sir you have taught me how to love, how to forget, but also how to remember. I will always be in your dept for that. I can’t say I’m your greatest fan, but I can so your music is my favorite memory of all. I’m working hard to be front row and center for your Stafford Center show on March 21,2013. With a little help from above I hope to shake your hand. God Bless you and your family.

    Best Regards
    Grant Thomas

  • mark r | Feb 5, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    I’ve been listening to your songs for 40 years! You are one of the living legends and your music tells all sorts of stories but at the end they all tells stories of the heart! Going to see you in Bathurst New Brunswick, wishing my Dad was joining me as he was a huge fan!
    Thanks Merle for all the great songs and strength we find in your music!

  • Farah | Feb 4, 2013 at 11:54 am

    My 88 year old Gram is anxiously anticipating your Atlanta performance on Valentines Day! I never saw her so excited! What would memories with Gram be without Merle playin in the background. Like peas & carrots! Thanks Merle!

  • Barb A. | Feb 3, 2013 at 9:01 am

    Just wanted to say thank you for a lifetime of music from the soul. My son is taking me to your concert 2/8/13. Welcome to Florida! This will be the third concert for me. I saw you many years ago in Seattle (I can still see you playing the fiddle and singing Cherokee Maiden) and in the 90′s in Tacoma. My late husbands favorite was always “Today I started loving you again” and “Heralds Super Service”. Me, well they are all my favorites. Wishing you continued good health and happiness.

    Everyday I turn on the radio and everyday I wish they had an ounce of what Merle Haggard has given to country music. Its not even close. The game has changed. When you hear Merle, Willie, Waylon, George Jones, Conway, and Vern Gosdin, you knew who it was, even if you didnt know the song….yet. Today, they all sound the same and I have no idea who they are, or what they sing……Merle has never sold who he is for the sake of selling records to a 16 yr old girl.

    My grandpa wore the same hat as Merle….

    God Bless Merle Haggard and God Bless the direction of country music.

  • Matt | Jan 31, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    Thanks Merle, I’ve been a fan ever since I heard the song The Bottle Let Me Down. You have an incredible voice. Thanks for all the ways you sing us them stories.

    • Russell | Feb 8, 2013 at 9:56 am

      Great song, “The Bottle Let me Down.” Going to see him tonight in St Petersburg

  • JT & Michele | Jan 31, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    Hi Merle, My husband has admired you since before I knew him and we are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary by going to see you in Gainesville on 2/9. You see, he has Altzheimer’s Disease. Like Glen Campbell, singing calms his soul. He still knows his music. So guess whose songs I know by heart. Yes, yours, and the others too. Being an old rock and roller, I’ve come to appreciate your words and songs over the years. Thanks for all you’ve done. Like George Jones sings, “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes?” You old country guys are great. Looking forward to seeing your show.

  • Gloria Dodge | Jan 31, 2013 at 8:43 am

    I love all you Legends MH!! I am so looking forward to seeing you in concert here in Arizona in April/13. I grew up listening to you all of our lives in Northern Arizona, REZ country USA!!! I hope we can meet in person. Your songs take me back home all the time!!

  • eugene | Jan 30, 2013 at 2:01 pm

    dear mr haggard i love all your song i would like to see you this year in mass god bless

  • lee from canada | Jan 30, 2013 at 11:25 am

    Merle , its so nice to read your testimony of gods healing power in your life. I was a pastor preacher for 15 years , played country gospel music , sang and preached to people. People thought I sounded like u . I guess when u listen to someones voice long enough u start to sound like them , ha ha. But Merle I want to tell u that I found something in your music that put me in touch with people and the real world. No surprise to me to see that u recognize gods presence in your life. God bless you and your family. Hope to see you soon in concert again soon maybe in florida in feb.

  • Dave Wilsey | Jan 30, 2013 at 9:21 am

    Merle, I know a girl who’s name is Char (as in charcoal). Her mother told her out came from one of your songs. Can anyone help us with what song it came from? I’ve been a fan of your through your entire career. You are what country music is all about.

    • Vicki K. | Feb 5, 2013 at 12:08 pm

      It’s probably from “The Girl Turnrd Ripe”, which has the lyrics: “We got a little doll with big brown eyes that we call Charmarie
      And there’s a great long line of pickers waitin’ to talk to me
      About the sweet little gal of mine that we call Charmarie.”.

  • Karen | Jan 29, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    Dear Merle
    I myself was born in Bakersfield, I grew up listening to stories of how you ran around with my uncles the Bullard boy’s momma always had a big crush on you ! You probably don’t remember them but I love your Music my favorite is Momma’s Hungry Eye’s

  • Kitty Trask | Jan 29, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    Love ur music Mr.Haggard!You are coming to the EastCoast of Canada this spring.I live in Nova Scotia and will be going for sure. I have a question-do you bring your own opening acts?My son is a singer songwriter -I wish you could hear his music.It is very hard to break thru here on the EastCoast especially if you are original.You can check his music out at Raspyvoice.com.I know u would like it-he writes all his own music and lyrics.He would be a perfect opening act for ur Halifax Nova Scotia show! Excuse me for being so bold but he needs a break to get his music out there and as aproud mother I just wanted to send my thoughts along.Keep up the great sound and I will b in the crowd at the Haifax show!Thank-you.

  • Melissa | Jan 29, 2013 at 9:29 am

    Please come back to Memphis soon!!!!!!

    • Bobbie Blalack | Jan 31, 2013 at 12:22 am

      You are the one man in Country Music that mesmerized me so many times through your music. I saw you in concert in Tulsa, Ok. The timing and I’m guessing was the mid-seventies. What a great show and will never forget it. I still listen to your music and brings back so many memories. Keep on keeping on. <3

  • leonard h | Jan 29, 2013 at 7:48 am

    I see you are doing a tour of eastern canada, any plans to come out to western canada? thank god for you

  • the cherokee kid | Jan 28, 2013 at 10:17 am

    i want to thank you for all the years of great music. but i want to thank you more for the Gospel songs that you have made through the years. i grew up in church, but at 39 yrs old i finally have found the peace in my life that only Christ can give us. your Gospel songs helped bring me back to Jesus. i cant tell you thank you enough. you were part of that inspiration. you will receive your rewards in heaven, merle. God Bless you. Tsi sa Tsi ge yu a Ni hi (“Jesus loves you” in Cherokee).

  • Donna | Jan 27, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    Why can I not find the sheet music to “Silver Wings”? I love that song.

  • Natalie | Jan 27, 2013 at 12:13 am

    Hi there, I come from a family of 11, 5 sisters and 3 brothers plus mum and dad. We all grew up with your music plus other legends, Jim Reeve’s, Marty Robin’s and many more. Most of us learnt to play guitar at very young age’s so there were a lot of fights over 1 guitar as you could imagine. Anyway I’ll get to the point. I found a video clip of you sing “Sing Me Back Home” in a concert that says 2009. Is it at all possible to purchase a dvd of this concert? I would dearly love to get it for my brother who has been ill for quite a while with that “C” word! He used to be in and out of prisons when he was younger but his health has gradually slowed him up. However his music is somthing that keeps him going as with us all:) I do hope you can help me bring my brother some joy here in NZ. Many thanks, Natalie

  • LWSmith | Jan 26, 2013 at 10:20 am

    God Bless You and Yours Merle. You’re the best. Me and a couple buddies think the world of you and go to see you every time you are at the Anaheim Grove. Looking forward to your up-comming date, 4/11. We’ll be sittin up front, center, like always. Sure would like to see you include Theresa in one of your songs. What a sweet, cute voice! We Love You Man……as a footnote I would like to say I grew up in Whittier, down the road from that POS Fred C. Nellis. As a young child, my neighbor, a minister, took me there to play Gospel music on my accordian for the boys down there. Imagine! Sometimes I wonder if you were one of the boys sitting out there listening. I remember what a nasty place that it was and how it made me feel. I’m sorry you lost your Daddy at such a young age and had to endure that. Thanks for being!!!!

  • Tiffany McQuaig | Jan 25, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    Merle,
    I’ve loved you since I was 4!! My thirteen month old little boy is named after you. :) Grayson Merle and I hope to see you in Orlando in February!! Can’t wait to hear you sing “My Favorite Memory” in person!!!! You’re the best!!!!

  • Joe Kosty | Jan 23, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    Before the oppertunity is lost, I just wanted to say “Thank you Merle” for providing a very memorable part of the soundtrack of my life! Having grown up in the mountains and high plains of northern New Mexico, your music just fit the landscape so well it seemed like I could just hear in the back of my mind, any one of your songs as I headed down a dusty road, or watched a Santa Fe highball freight roll by, or stopped into to any Cafe or Honky Tonk where people gathered along ‘ol Route 66. I’ve seen you at rodeos, state fairs and arenas 4 times over the years, and each time I knew I was watching the artistry of a true American who speaks his mind like a man. I can almost shed a tear for the way America has turned away and forgottten a lot of who we are and what made us great in this era of strange politics and wrong-full thinking. As long as you and your music is around (and a few others like you), I can still take comfort knowing the America and the faith filled people I know and love, will have a troubadour to sing the songs of our hearts…Your buddy, Joe K.

  • Corey Valencia | Jan 23, 2013 at 10:19 am

    P.S. I’ll be watching for a California show, if one should pop up,
    Hope to see you this year,

  • Corey Valencia | Jan 23, 2013 at 10:13 am

    Hey Merle & Theresa Happy new year to you boths, how you doing,
    Hope you all’s had a wonderful Holiday Season,
    Inc. The Band,

  • Vicki K. | Jan 22, 2013 at 9:44 am

    Nobody from your organization asked me to do this, so I will! :-) I just received the 2 ladies shirts I ordered, and I’m very pleased with the look, and also impressed with how soft they are! I look forward to wearing them, especially the one that says ‘Mama Tried”, in front of my kids. Heh heh… ;-) Thank you very much!

  • Jami | Jan 21, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    Hoping there will be a meet and greet opportunity at the Midland/Odessa Tx. concert! I’m related to Merle and have never met him. My grandpa Ed Villines was his grandma Zone Villines youngest brother!!! Hope to see something soon on the fan page!!!

  • Glenda Bowman | Jan 21, 2013 at 7:13 pm

My friends and myself have been fans of yours as long as I can remember, and we think you hung the moon!!! Our club is really only a really really small bar but hey it’s ours ! :) just let me know thanks
    Glenda

  • Nick | Jan 21, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    Who doesn’t enjoy Merle’s music? I was born in Muskogee on April 6th, and everytime I hear his song about my hometown it makes me homesick….

  • Susan S. Schull | Jan 21, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    I had the pleasure of meeting you, along time ago in Vienna MO. When you was there for a visit with family and friends. I was so scared to meet you and you made me feel right at home with you. I sat by you looking through a old year book. I just always wanted to thank you for such a special moment and the opportunity to meet you. Thank you again.

  • brett a. | Jan 20, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    Thank you Merle! During my tour of duty in Iraq 2005 I listened to your songs every time I got to sleep. Just not too loud so as not to hear the thump of incoming. You got me through a very difficult time! You are my country hero!

  • Ruby Johnson | Jan 15, 2013 at 5:42 pm

  • JerrynKari Hollenbeck | Jan 14, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    What a great sale at the HAG’s store, I think I finally own just about everything I wanted..50% off I was able to get everything with the exception of the one sticket I really wanted, but hoping it will be back in stock soon. I”m looking for tickets for the show in Bakersfield, I have been chasing this man, all over a few states but never seen him in my own back yard. Bakersfield is a dream and I have been good money for seat several different times, however on I just seen on ebay someone selling 3 tickets for over 650, I was hoping it came with more then just the seats…maybe battery operated..Just kidding :)

    Where is the best place to purchase the tickets.

  • Vicki K. | Jan 14, 2013 at 8:27 am

    Hey there from West Texas! I’ve been a fan since the early 70′s, when I used to play or sing “Mama Tried” to get my middle child to drift off to sleep. That was his “lullaby” song, and I have to say that he showed great taste in music at a very early age! I was just listening to “Sing A Sad Song”, and it makes me feel like crying when I listen to it, but not because I’m sad about something. It’s just because it’s so beautiful to listen to! I hope you all are well this new year, and I’m counting the days until you come our way, and I can see everyone in person for the first time!

  • Peter | Jan 13, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    Well the truth is I never wrote a fan letter before ..well maybe there was one in the early 50 s to Roy Rogers or probably it was more likely to Pat Brady ..or nellibell..but here I am writing one at 66 years old ..I live in NJ now grew up in Brooklyn ny ..was a orphan at 6 years old ..was lucky enough to meet a girl who became the woman I married and we still are..Jesus and my wife brought me this far…and your songs thought me a great deal about life and it’s strengths and challenges..just want you to know to this day when I hear you sing “big city” and many others as I listen I realize how much your music has taught me and gave me a better outlook than many of the people that I rub shoulders with on a daily basis in this world of new jersey…thanks Merle and God Bless you

  • Maggie Hillis | Jan 13, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    You’re coming once again to Chattanooga, TN, and to the best venue in Chattanooga, the Tivoli. I just received a good job offer out of town as an archaeologist. I really need to take this temp job, but I missed you last time and swore that I’d see you again if you ever came back. I want you to know that the desire to see you live might end up outweighing my desire for financial stability in a profession I love. “Look at me, workin in Tennessee!” and once again analyzing my “ramblin’ fever”

  • Loretta Dye | Jan 12, 2013 at 11:21 am

    COME TO MICHIGAN, FLINT. OR SOARING EAGLE IN MT. PLEASANT,!!!!!!

  • Teresa Gossard | Jan 12, 2013 at 9:10 am

    I have great tickets to see you in Deadwood this July…had great seats last time you were in Deadwood, would LOVE to meet you! I’ve been a Merle fan all my life…listening to your music takes me back to my childhood and growing up in the middle of nowhere…great memories…you’re my absolute favorite! I was so excited to finally get to see you in person the first time, and never dreamed you would come back to South Dakota! Can’t wait!!!

  • Kian McCarthy | Jan 11, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    Friday, 11 January 2013
    Dear Mr. Haggard,
    God blessed you with an amazing musical gift of talent. I saw you perform for the first time in 1971. I saw you at the Nugget in 2011. Very pleased to see your most recent performance of I Was A Stranger on You Tube. Your performances have always brought joy to my heart. Are there any new projects with Jimmie Rodgers or Lefty Frizzell material coming down the road in the not so distant future? Peace, love and good health to you and your amazing band, The Strangers.
    Sincerely,
    Kian McCarthy

  • Kathy | Jan 10, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    Great show at the cascade tonight! thanks for coming out and doing it for us!

  • Janet | Jan 10, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    … and once again, I didn’t follow the instructions. What is my favorite song? How could I ever say? It all depends on what is playing at the time, I guess. There is a Merle Haggard song to fit just about every mood I have within me. Sadness, meloncholy, loss, hope, happiness, playful, fun ….. always good.

  • Janet | Jan 10, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    I live in Southern Oregon, Central Point to be almost exact. How long have I been a fan? From the first time I ever saw and heard you on Cousin Herb’s Tradin’ Post, out of Bakersfield during the 50′s. Over the years, I have followed you and your career, and your life and your loves through your books and your songs. I have attended many of performances, from large auditoriums to small, smokey bars.

    When I saw that you would be giving a concert at the Cascade Theater in Redding, I told my husband how important it was to me and we got our tickets. Unfortunately, the weather has played the trump card and we have decided it would be too risky trying to get over “the hill” (Siskiyou Summit).

    So, we will not be there tonight in seats BB-102 and BB-103, but I will be thinking about you. No one sings a song like you, Merle. Best wishes, old friend.

  • Vicki | Jan 9, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    Just got tickets for the March concert in Odessa! Super excited to see a legend make his beautiful music in person! God bless!

  • Jeb | Jan 9, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    Hey can the legend try and make it out to MD or southern Pa

    Thanks

  • Ray Brodeur | Jan 8, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    Merle,I played country lead guitar for 38 years and when you started singing at first,you ended up being my most favorite country singer of all times.I’m 70 now and I want to hear your son play.I will look for your upcoming cd.Here in Rhode Island we have a couple of radio stations but only hear your original songs from long ago.They don’t air the new stuff you’re doing which I want so much to hear.I’ll do a search on this pc and find you.Happy New year Merle.One of your greatest fans,Ray Brodeur
