In the wee hours of Tuesday morning I dreamed I was spending final hours with the great Merle Haggard. In the dream, he counted me as a friend he'd known for many years.
Sadly, that isn't true. I never had the opportunity to meet Merle Haggard or to interview him. I don't regret having not had the chance because I believe that all things happen for a reason. Someday, I'll have the opportunity to talk to a lot of great artists in country music's Grand Palace. Until then, I can only share their music with my readers.
In the dream, this song was playing in the background and thought it was perfect for today's Throwback Thursday video.
