Merle Haggard: Roots Volume 1
Buy! - (Anti-)
The country legend recruited original Lefty Frizzell guitarist Norm Stephens for this warm and informal tribute to the three country singers who inspired him back in the early 1950s when he was a kid with a guitar: Hank Williams, Hank Thompson, and most of all, Lefty Frizzell. Along with songs from those guys, the album includes three new Merle originals written in the spirit of his influences. 10/15/2001 - Don Yates
