In a recent interview, accourding to Fox News, Merle was asked on the state of country music, his response.....
“I can’t tell what they’re doing,” the country legend says in an interview. “They’re talking about screwing on a pickup tailgate and things of that nature. I don’t find no substance. I don’t find anything you can whistle and nobody even attempts to write a melody. It’s more of that kids stuff. It’s hot right now, but I’ll tell you what, it’s cooling off.”
Merle Haggard, admits he only admire one person in the business right now, Sturgill Simpson. He has even invited him to open some shows for him.
