Merle Haggard knows exactly his place in this crazy industry and that’s as a legend. And legends can’t be legends without speaking their minds right?!
ABC Radio shared a quote from Merle regarding the current state of country music and he didn’t hold back…
“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.”
Well, if Merle says it…it has to be true…right?! Oh and he also called the sound a bunch of crap.
