"The only thing I know anything about is me. I've had a most interesting life, and as long as I write about it and give some melody to it, it'll turn out wonderful."

Even at that point, The Hag is still unafraid to admit he doesn't have all of the answers. But "over 15 years of intense Bible study" has given him a sense of what the world needs in order to find them.

"Faith is the only way we're going to make it. None of us are smart enough to do it on our own."

Merle is one of the most genuine voices in American music history. His struggle is well documented........the first time I heard "Mama Tried", it sent shivers down my spine. I LOVE the way he thought the Flying Burrito Brothers (well documented!) were a bunch of fruits. Best song: Rainbow Stew; it brought it all back....the ghost of Hank, Jimmy Rodgers-and Ernest Tubb. Oh yeah, also Faron Young, and most importantly-The GREAT swingin' Bob Wills.
