FREE STREAM: Merle Haggard - I Am What I Am (2010)

NPR currently have Merle Haggard's upcoming album, 'I Am What I Am', available for free up until the album's official release on 20th April. I was never a big country fan until I met my fiancee and she showed me the light and I can't wait to listen to this! In case you're not aware, Merle and Buck Owens were the two most successful artists of the 'Bakersfield Sound' era back in the 60s, which was apparently a reaction to the overproduced country coming out of Nashville during the late 50s. Gram Parsons was also a huge fan of Merle Haggard and didn't become serious about country music until he heard Merle.
