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.
