Celebrities Mourn Merle Haggard’s Death

Merle Haggard, one of the most successful singers in the history of country music, died Wednesday at the age of 79. Haggard influenced many other performers that came after him. Not just other country singers, but rock bands like the Byrds and the Grateful Dead, as well as acts like Elvis Costello, all of whom covered Haggard’s songs.
