    HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my HERO of all time !!!

    I was able to see you for the first time in 2012 at CHEYENNE FRONTIER DAYS.

    FABULOUS CONCERT as I expected !!!

    I would go see you as often as I could.

    I have played Bass Guitar to many of your songs over many years, Working Man Blues being my all time favorite !

    My all time dream would be to JAM with you and the Band.

    I am writing about Alan Walton, a huge fan of Merle. Al was Merle’s biggest fan his whole life. At most parties at his house (and there were lots) Al would end the evening (or the early morning) with Merle songs and it was always the sign of a good party if Merle had made an appearance. Al had pretty well all of Merle’s LPs and they were treated with the utmost respect and care.
    Al was so excited when he heard Merle was going to give a concert in New Brunswick Canada. Friends and family got together and manned the lines as soon as the tickets went on sale. We had to get him good tickets. We did. It was to be the thrill of his life to see Merle live and he talked about it all the time.
    Al passed away suddenly (a massive heart attack) on January 13th 2013. He had just turned 60. He will never be able to fulfill his dream of seeing Merle.
    Al had a hard life but he always loved people and he loved to have fun. We miss him so much. At his service, over 300 people crowded in the funeral home to pay their respects. The psalms were 3 songs by Merle: Daddy Frank, Silver Wings and Bye Bye Travellin’ Blues. There was not a dry eye in the house.
    Al’s wife Louise and his daughter Christina will be at Merle’s concert in honor of Al. ……
    Al was my brother-in-law (I am Louise’s sister) and I loved him very much.

    Happy Birthday Merle! May you have many more!
    My favorite song is “If I Could Only Fly”. I lost my husband to cancer 2 yrs ago
    and I have played that song over and over.
    Thank you for the hours of pleasure you have brought to the people of this country~

    Happy Birthday Love you Merle

  • Lorelei Reimer | Apr 6, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    Last night’s show in Tacoma Wa. was beautiful and bittersweet. You see, I learned about you Merle from my Dad’s love of your music. He experienced many of your life’s experiences on his journey including not heeding a Mama who tried, a love affair with trains and a bit of time behind bars where he befriended the last man in Canada to be executed. Sing Me Back Home touched my Dad and I deeply. I hoped that you would play it last night, and you did.The first concert I ever saw was you in Vancouver BC back in 1980 or 81, I was 15 and bought two tickets, one for me, one for Dad. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You see, my Dad passed away just shy of two months ago. Tears poured down my face as I listened to you sing and play. Like I said, bittersweet, but mostly sweet. Happy birthday, Merle.

    • Leon Jonjock | Apr 7, 2013 at 7:16 am

    Happy Birthday Merle! I hope you and the family are having a great day of celebration and fun. I just want to tell you how much I appreciate your great songs and singing. I have been a fan as long as I can remember and have enjoyed your live show for years. The pure Quality of the earlier recordings of you and the rest of the traditional country artist are missed dearly. You guys had the quality in your delivery making the warmest recordings that we will ever know. It was’nt about we can fix that digitally it was about doing it with what God gave you. I look forward to every next Cd you put out and everytime I’ll get to see you perform live. God Bless you and your family.
    Sincerely, Eddie Morgan Fort Worth Tx.

  • Ruth Baptie Johnson | Apr 6, 2013 at 8:46 am

    My husband and I knew and loved your music long before we knew each other. There is no one like you in voice quality. We are both from Peterborough, On., Canada. It’s hard to pick a favorite song because you have so many great ones. My husband’s favorite if he has to choose is “Teach me to forget”, I love “Branded Man” as well as all the others. Peterborough is a hub of Country Music- both fans and musicians so your name is revered around here as a great singer, songwriter and musician. We wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and keep on entertaining us with your marvellous music. I like to have head phones on and absorb your singing as if it was going right through me.
