It is safe to say that there is not one person involved in country music that has not been touched by Merle Haggard and his music, myself included. The first song that really touched me was "Mama's Hungry Eyes". Somehow at that time in my life when I first heard it, I felt that it was a song about me in a way. A song about not having what you really wish you had, but not saying or expressing it, so no one knows although you can see it in someone's eyes if you are observant. Today I listened to some of his music on Spotify and created a playlist with some of the songs I like the very best.
Thank you for your music Merle Haggard and rest in peace.
