Nothing like Whitey Morgan playing Merle Haggard tunes to kick off your week.
Joined by his guitarist Joey Spina, Whitey got back on the ol’ livestream the other night and dedicated his entire set to the hits of Merle Haggard.
Titled “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here And Drink,” which also happens to be the motto of my life for the past 4 months, Whitey and Joey delivered a whole mess of Merle Haggard tunes, and not just the most well-known hits. Nope, Whitey went deep.
“Here’s what’s gonna happen tonight. You’re gonna notice these aren’t all the Merle Haggard, the normal hits. These are the songs that I think are hits. These are my favorites, these are the deep cuts, the ones you should know and I’m gonna show ’em to you tonight, me and Joey are.”
They covered everything from “Working Man’s Blues” and “Swinging Doors,” to “Sing Me Back Home” and more.
And while my Merle Haggard knowledge is admittedly fairly limited, I will tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed this. If you got nothing going on right now, and let’s be honest most of us don’t, pour yourself a cold beer and check it out.
