Merle Haggard is one of the biggest badasses in the history of badassery. Cycling through a life of juvenile detention centers as a kid and prisons as an adult, Haggard became the ragged edge of the Bakersfield Sound in the ’60s, and tattered face of the outlaw country movement of the ’70s. In Rolling Stone’s new issue, Jason Fine runs down the sordid history of this guitar-slinger, who’s currently enjoying a new resurgence of popularity. Check out our Merle Haggard photo gallery, full of choice quotes and anecdotes, telling the story of this country original.
