Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist - Artist (Sample). Merle Haggard was one of the few country music singers left. The songs on this album take me back to younger days. Great deal with no problems.
It became his fifth album to top the Billboard country album charts. It also reached number 66 on the pop albums chart. Hag was Haggard's first album with a majority of original songs in two years, following two tribute albums (to Jimmie Rodgers and Bob Wills) and two live albums in 1969 and 1970
After the country icon’s death, his big hits such as Okie From Muskogee are getting all the attention, but it was his little known album from 2000 – released on a punk label – that was his last great outlaw statement. Merle Haggard died today. I love his first big hit, All My Friends Are Gonna Be Strangers, with his elastic phrasing sliding over those familiar honky-tonk changes. I love his classic 60s shimmering Bakerfield outlaw epics such as Mama Tried. I even adore slick 80s tracks like Call Me, where his voice catches against the easy listening background. But for me, his best album is his last great one: If I Could Only Fly, released in 2000.
Arranged chronologically from his outlaw hit "I'm a Lonesome Fugitive" in 1967 through 1981's "I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink," this would seem like the ultimate collection for Haggard fans, but alas this is not the case.

Merle Haggard penned several of his great hits, but he had more success with this song as a writer than as its singer. Merle Haggard co-wrote this song with longtime friend Dean Holloway. As the two walked around California, where they were making an album, they became disgusted with the city’s dirty sidewalks, and it sparked the idea for a new song powered by twin fiddles. It features Leona Williams, Haggard’s wife at the time, on background vocals.
