So strange that 2 years ago today Merle Haggard who passed away yesterday received a life time achievement award this day.
Merle Haggard received the Academy of Country Music's Crystal Milestone Award today on his 77th birthday - 6th April 2014. His first #1 hit was - I'm a Lonesome Fugitive in 1966. I bought a compilation C&W Album from Jashanmal & Sons in Abu Dhabi in 1968 that featured this hit. I was 21 years old.
