How has no one asked him about this before?!

Merle Haggard was actually asked to join Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson in the The Highwaymen, but declined because, quote, “…it’ll cut the money down so low, you guys won’t even wanna do it.” He went on to say, “When you’re touring the world, you gotta take the economics into play. It’s gonna cost a lot of money to do that. When you got 15-20 people traveling with you, it’s a big deal.”

But wait, there’s more! Listen to the clip below for the full interview. The interview starts with us talking about the video for the first single, “It’s All Going To Pot.”
