I am a traditional country singer who grew up traveling on the road with Merle Haggard. Legendary songwriter Hank Cochran is producing my first CD now with Merle involved. We plan to make it REAL country.
Just a week ago I was listening to the only great radio show here (KSJC’s “Lubbock or Leave It” and one of the songs, that just made me cry with thoughts of how lousy most of today’s country music is, was an old Merle Haggert one. It wasn’t “Okie” but sounded similar. When I hear this sort of stuff I just realize that I missed a lot of the music that would have been ‘mine’.
