In memory of Merle Haggard…

…who died today at 79:

Austin Lucas, via Saving Country Music, who has a great collection of reactions:

“Just absolutely fucking gutted to hear about the passing of Merle Haggard.”

That’s about it. The music Merle blessed us with will live on, but we have still lost something that is absolutely irreplaceable.
