Merle Haggard’s New Album & Willie Nelson’s New Tour Dates
The great Merle Haggard released a new album this week. Look for the Swampland review soon. The album—I Am What I Am—released on Vanguard retains an old bluegrass-country sound. Haggard’s unmistakable voice proves strong as ever. It’s good to see him still recording great music after all these years. Songs from the new album can be heard on his official website.
Haggard’s old friend Willie Nelson is recording a new album with T-Bone Burnett. Willie also released an album of country classics this week. Of course, Willie’s on the road again (so is Merle) and the tour dates are lined up. So, tune in to these old outlaws for their latest endeavors. More album and tour updates on Merle and Willie soon. Remember Willie's tour of baseball parks with Bob Dylan?
