merle_haggard_today

Not to be mistaken for an Okie with a Stethascopy, Merle Haggard will soon be honored with a doctorate from California State University Bakersfield. The school decided to make Merle a Doctor of Fine Arts which could lead to finally finding the cure for pop country which has already affected millions.

Buck Owens will also be honored, posthumously, by the university with the President’s Medal. Both will be recognized at the Spring 2013 commencement ceremony for the School of Arts & Humanities June 14.
