    Congratulations on your anniversary. My spouse and I just celebrated our 35th year together. It is wonderful that you are healthy again Merle!

    I’ve loved and listened to your music for as long as I can remember. Marty Robbins and Merle Haggard have always been household words in our family. ( My father looked and sounded quite a lot like you, Merle, in younger days. ) Now that Marty is no longer with us, “Merle Haggard: is alone at the top of my favorites list. I am already eagerly aniticipating the chance to attend one of your concerts in 2010!

    May you enjoy great health, and many years of wedded bliss to come!

    I’ve been a Hag fan since I was twelve years old. My Uncle used to play and sing Merle’s songs on the guitar all the time. Now that I’m older and living in Austin, Tx. the local D.J.’s here say that since Merle met Teresa he’s been hapier than they’ve ever seen. I’m glad to hear that. Keep singin’ Merle you are an inspiration that will always be remembered! I wear my own kind of hat!!!!!!!

  • Clint | Nov 27, 2009 at 11:45 am

    Merle i wanted to thank you for keeping me in your prayer’s while i was in prison for five years in Texas. During my time i lost my only brother who was older than me. God only knows the pain i went through during that time. By the grace of God i was able to attend my brother’s funeral. The one thing that really tore me up was seeing my mom hanging over my brother’s casket. Thank you Merle for taking time out of your schedule to write me a letter while i was locked up. Getting your letter was the best day in my life. I have always been a big fan of yours. You are the greatest song writer and singer of all time. Hopefully you can call me. Take care and God Bless you and your family

  • Bob Davis/ | Nov 25, 2009 at 11:07 am

    Dear Hag,
    I have never been more proud. You are still number 1, particularly up here. You are the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be. Love to you and Teresa for this beautiful moment in time……If I could only fly.

  • Bob Davis | Nov 25, 2009 at 10:58 am

    Dear Merle,

    NEVER BEFORE AND NEVER AGAIN…Aside from our friendship, you have the finest voice, you are the greatest song writer and the most talented musician in the history of country music. NOW you have Teresa and you both have a family of gold to match your talent. People save their money for a year to take the whole family to a Merle Haggard concert…and rightfully so. Sylvia and I listen to you for hours at a time from your first recording to today…YOU WILL ALWAYS BE NUMBER 1. Here’s to another 16 years, God Bless you both and your beautiful family.
    Love Bob and Sylvia

  • Jeff Levingston | Nov 8, 2009 at 6:38 am

    Hey Merle and Theresa;
    Jeff Levingston here, I wish you both a long marriage and both successful careers. I’ve been out to the Kern River home several times while you were living there. I worked for Blackies Pumping Service (kinda like Andy Gump) back in the ’70′s. We were at your home quite often. My wife, the kids, and I are living in Missouri now. We have been here for two years.I sure do miss Bakersfield thou, and all the country music, like Steve and Jeff in the mornings at KUZZ. I’m sure seven sisters and beer can hills miss you too! I was in the audience for the recording of “Beer Can Hill”. Congratulations on sixteen years! Keep up the greatest music from the greatest artist there ever was. Merle, you and Theresa come on down to Branson!

    Saw you last night at the Mondavi Center in Davis, CA and loved every minute of your show. Just wish it could have been longer. Love your music Merle and see you every chance I get. Have most of your music whether on LP, cassette or CD’s. Saw you in VA in a State Park with Conway Twitty many moons ago Mere and have loved you ever since. Keep on writing and recording and I’ll keep on supporting and enjoying your music. I also share the same year of your birth Merle and we’re not getting older, just better. LOL Vacaville, CA

    Dear Teresa and Merle:

    Congratulations on your 16th wedding anniversary. Teresa, you must be one heck of a woman to put up with that scoundrel all these years! No, I’m just kidding. Hag’s the greatest guy in the world, and you’re both very lucky to have each other. Merle, more than you, Teresa. I think you’ve help keep him well and going strong since you’ve been with him. I’m not so sure we’d still have the greatest Country singer in the world still with us if it wasn’t for you. Have one on me, whatever it is!!

  • Josh Williams | Sep 23, 2009 at 1:23 am
