Merle Haggard Recorded One Of His Biggest Songs On May 16th, 1969

Forty-eight years ago today, Merle Haggard recorded “Workin’ Man Blues,”

The song would be released on his 1969 album ‘A Portrait of Merle Haggard’.

“Workin’ Man Blues” was just one of 38 number one singles that “the Hag” earned during his career. The song was also included on several of his compilation albums & has been covered by numerous artist over the years.

Haggard passed away on April 6, 2016. Merle has written and recorded so many great songs such as “Mama Tried,” “Today I Started Loving You Again,” “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink”, “Okie From Muskogee”, and on & on.
