Country Artists Collaborate on Merle Haggard Tribute Album

One of Country music’s all-time greats is getting a tribute album. Twenty, plus, of today’s hottest acts will be lending their voices to honor the legendary, Merle Haggard.

From USA Today:

Working Man’s Poet will be available digitally through iTunes. Physical copies of the album, sold only at Walmart, will include Brooks’ version of Haggard’s 1966 hit Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down, which also appeared on his recent box set for the retailer.

If, like me you were hoping for a reason to at least DVR the ACM’s, here it is. This year’s show on April 6th, The Hag will b the “recipient of a multi-artist tribute segment and receive the ACM’s Crystal Milestone award, honoring his 50th anniversary in country music.”

The ACM Awards are April 6, on CBS from Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. I’m gonna go set my DVR, now. Read more about the album and show, here.
