“Merle Haggard was my favorite of them all. RIP to a true legend. When I go up to the jukebox I without question play Swingin Doors, The Night The Bottle Let Me Down, Just Stay Here And Drink, Honky Tonk Night Time Man, Ramblin Fever, Mama Tried, Silver Wings and they go on and on. Thanks for teaching me how to play real country music!” – Guthrie Trapp
