A true ladies man .... Remembering - Country great Merle Haggard, born April 6 1937 also passed on April 6 2016, talk about completion to the evolution.  2016 brutality continued ... Merle Ronald Haggard was an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, and fiddler. Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band the Strangers helped create the Bakersfield sound, which is characterized by the twang of Fender Telecaster and the unique mix with the traditional country steel guitar sound, new vocal harmony styles in which the words are minimal, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville sound recordings of the same era.

He died on his 79th birthday — at his ranch in Northern California, having recently suffered from double pneumonia.
