Throwback To Eric Church Performing “Pledge Allegiance To The Hag” 13 Years Ago

With today being both Merle Haggard’s birthday, and the 4-year anniversary of his death, it got me thinking about this old Eric Church classic.

“Pledge Allegiance To The Hag.”

A cut from Church’s debut album Sinners Like Me,” the song has continued to be a fan favorite, even after all of these years.

But rather than just posting the song, or a kickass live version, I dug deep into the Eric Church archives and found this hidden gem from well over 10 years ago.

I don’t know exactly when this was in relation to when he put out the record, but it’s pretty damn close.

So today, tip your hat and raise a glass today to the great Merle Haggard.
