Despite my age (25) I grew up listening to Merle, George Jones and all of the older artists right along with the new country in the '90s and still have a few of his cassettes in my truck to this day, Love all of his music and always will.

Nice to know some of the young folks like you Adam, appreciate this kind of music. It is disappearing fast. Sounds like Glen Campbell's days are drawing to a close soon too.

I have my dad to thank for that, we always had a few tapes in his car and his old f250, still keep a few in the van on long road trips.  The console in my truck contains about 20 cassette tapes from various artists, plan on putting a xm radio in it as well, ad just running it through the tape player with an adapter so I can listen to the old music more.

Merle, Buck Owens, Freddie Hart and others, created that great Bakersfield sound. Songs like Tulare dust, spoke to being raised in San Joaquin Valley farm country, where poor farm workers, much like other areas with poor people struggling, such as the Misdissippi delta, the Appalachian region, etc... gave rise to music from the heart. Merle will be missed.

Sad to see anyone pass away.

I honestly didn't know who he was. I have heard some of his music before though. Not a big country fan.

I love the ipod! The hand-me-down setup I have can be played in any vehicle with an FM radio and a cigarette lighter wireless.

If you just want to listen to Merle, just pick him for the artist and that's what it plays, not what someone else thinks you should listen to like a radio station---even xm satellite. My wife has an xm subscription in her car but to me it makes more sense to spend the bucks on the ipod and put what you want on it. This pic is playing an ipod in my '55 GMC.

Hey Dac I still have my old Ipod Classic about 3500 songs on there including most everything MH made. He was definitely a legend that not only made some of the best music but was an American Patriot. He actually grew up living in a box car. Will be missed.

I too love those good old country boys and their music.  Merl had his own style and have lot of his work on tape that have been copied to CD's.  Not in to the IPod, smart phones and all that hi tech stuff so just use my CD's.  Blank CD's at lot less expensive than another machine that can quit at any time you end up with nothing.  MH will be missed but truly never forgotten.
