Country music icon MERLE HAGGARD left behind one final recording, "Kern River Blues," which will debut on SIRIUSXM "WILLIE'S ROADHOUSE" on THURSDAY, MAY 12th. HAGGARD, who passed away last MONTH (NET NEWS 4/6), wrote and recorded the song during his time in the hospital and at home while battling pneumonia.
"Kern River Blues" is about HAGGARD's memories of leaving BAKERSFIELD in the late 1970s. After the song debuts on SIRIUSXM, it will be available on HAGGARD's website and on iTUNES. Ten percent of all gross proceeds will benefit homeless charities.
