Merle Haggard Health Crisis
Nobody tells a story like Merle Haggard. Nobody's lived a story quite like he has. He's one of the most prolific poets and most poignant, if plain-spoken, artists of our time. And he may no longer live here, but he lives in our hearts. He's one of Bakersfield's brightest stars. In Bakersfield, we never abandon our own in time of need.
