Guide Review - Merle Haggard - Down Every Road
All the great songs are to be found here: "Swinging Doors," "The Fugitive," "Branded Man," "Tonight The Bottle Let Me Down," "(Today) I Started Loving You Again," "Mama Tried," "Hungry Eyes," "Silver Wings," "Okie From Muskogee," "The Fightin' Side Of Me" Merle had so many hits through the tail end of the 60's and throughout the 70's it's impossible to list them all here. His career hits are legendary; his standing unquestionable.
Country Music's Living Legend turned 66 this year, and yet he's not been resting on his laurels. Since 1993, he's been releasing albums and touring, just like always. He's had enough great songs in the last decade to fill up another two discs. But this is a great place to start.
