Had the opportunity to see Merle Haggard at the Tivoli Theatre in Chatt.Tn. last night. Have to admit that I am an old diehard rock N roller,but I like some of the true country too. Not much of it left these days. Merle's voice amazed me. He sang many of his hits and they all sounded great. He's STILL got it. This is one of my favorite photos of him.Concert lighting changes constantly,but I liked the way the light shone on his hands.It seemed to match his mysterious look.

    The tones and textures of the face are amazing---the hat and the sunglasses remind me of Mick Jagger, yielding to the rock side--love the tilt of the head too

    We saw The Hag a few summers ago at the Parmount in town. He's long been a fav. When Merle sings, you know it's him from the first note. My favorite of the night was 'I Am What I Am'... "I'm just a seeker, I'm just a sinner, and I'll be what I am". Yep Merle... couldn't agree more. This shot really captures his essence. Where's the love button?
