AWD, Conservative Thought, In The Press, Music That Doesn't Suck, Random Posts




The Hag and Willie were scheduled to play together below Austin next weekend. Guess who had tickets! Dayum! AWD never got the chance to see Merle in concert. He passed today on his 79th birthday. I guess he was worried about AWD crashing the stage and singing a tune….as I am known to do.

Another musical great has gone to the great beyond. I don’t have much to say except I hope his family is doing well and to say thank you to Merle for his great music. Four chords and the truth!

Some of my Merle favorites are:

Rest in peace, Merle.



  1. The Lord turned Merle loose and set him free,

  2. I wish a buck was still silver, it was back when the country was strong. Me too Hag, RIP.

  3. Beverly W Schmidt

    I’ll have an extra Dickel tonight just for you, Merle.

  4. Spurwing Plover

    Becuase song like Okie from Muskogy will always be remembers better then dumb songs like DOG and BUTTERFLY,AGE of AQUARIUS and BIG YELLOW TAXI its a patriotic song

  5. I was fortunate to have seen Merle Haggard in two concerts during my time in the military, where he came to Oahu, Hawaii back in the early 1970s. He had already piled up an incredible stack of great songs by that time, and only got better over the next two decades that followed.

    I found this quote that was attributed to Merle Haggard:

    Merle Haggard gave one of the best critiques in regards to what has happened to America over the past half-century. He stated this in 2000:

    “Look at the past 25 years — we went downhill, and if people don’t realize it, they don’t have their f%#cking eyes on. In 1960, when I came out of prison as an ex-convict, I had more freedom under parolee supervision than there’s available to an average citizen in America right now.”

    Reading that quote, I found myself wondering if Merle was at some level ‘aware’ that the #1 reason why the America that he and most of us love is going down the crapper since 1960 is because of the fact that the grandchildren of the ethnic tribe of Bolsheviks who seized Russia by the hair of it’s head following the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution – orchestrated their second hostile revolution here in the USA in the 1960s, i.e., the Cultural Marxist virulently anti-White revolution – and then immediately set about to undermine, subvert, degrade. sow seeds of division and conflict, push degeneracy and depravity in every conceivable and vile form imaginable, in a clear attempt to destroy everything that was good, decent, moral, and wholesome about Western civilization?

    Had Merle reviewed that speech that Joe Biden gave before an audience of these nation wreckers about 2 years ago, where he summarized a list of their destructive achievements – and then PRAISED them for having done so, I’m sure he would have made the connection.

  6. RIP, Merle. 79 years ain’t a bad run.

    I suppose the Lord wanted his own personal concert.

  7. I saw Merle twice once in 1983 at Danville Il and at Taylorville in 2004. Both times he was great!!

    “Do not cry at my death, Just put a quarter in the juke box and sing me back home”

    RIP Merle.

  8. Disgusted Caucasian

    I didn’t know Hillary was a country music performer too.

  9. RIP MERLE he was great!

  10. Desert Rat

    Haggard and Jones together in Heaven. Now that’s a show to see!
