I had heard his name but knew nothing about him until I became close friends with a guy who did the country bar circuit in the 80's, I wasn't a fan of that music. Exposure to Haggard's music changed my attitude, I grew to love his gritty rough edge outlaw songs, Pancho and Lefty became a favorite. I also enjoyed Mama Tried.

     One of my favorite country singers.  There's not many of that generation left.

He played a mean guitar.  Set the stage for many who followed in rock as well as country.
