Comment:

You know you're a bad man when people aren't merely stepping up to cover songs by you, but are actually writing songs about you. Alt-country darling Rosie Flores weaves a pickup truck full of Merle song titles into "Girl Haggard," a honky-tonkin' stream-of-consciousness ramble about her unrequited love for Bakersfield's favorite son. Georgia-based Mike McCarroll uncorks a double-barreled blast of fiddle-scrapin', boot-scootin' vintage country as he inserts himself into a somewhat unholy trinity in "Merle Haggard, Jack Daniels & Me." And if you want your Haggard homily to have that straight-from-the-cowboy's-mouth ring of authenticity, take a page from the Blaine Larsen playbook: rope in Merle himself to sing a closing line of self-tribute on "If Merle Would Sing My Song." Whether they're making plays on his name (as in "Haggard & Cashed") or name-checking Merle among country's greatest (as in "Nelson, Haggard & Jones"), some of today's brightest talents are basking in the glow of the San Joaquin's biggest star.
