Eric Church paid tribute to Merle Haggard during separate shows on Saturday and Sunday. The "Record Year" singer bypassed his own songs for a stirring three-song medley at the Grand Ole Opry before heading west for a popular country music fest.
Merle Haggard is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and has received numerous other honors, but this may be the most unexpected of them all. The 78-year-old country icon finally got a diploma from Bakersfield High School over the weekend, more than 60 years after dropping out.
Country legends Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard have released a music video for their catchy tune, "It's All Going to Pot." The music video was released on 4/20, which is fitting given the song's title.
