SORT BY Relevancy
Merle Ronald Haggard (born April 6, 1937) is an American country and Western songwriter, singer, guitarist, fiddler, and instrumentalist. Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band The Strangers helped create the Bakersfield sound, which is characterized by the unique twang of Fender Telecaster and the unique mix with the traditional country steel guitar sound, new vocal harmony styles in which the words are minimal, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville sound recordings of the same era.
By the 1970s, Haggard was aligned with the growing "outlaw country" movement, and has continued to release successful albums through the 1990s and into the 2000s. In 1994, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1997, he was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.
In these difficult days and times we often look to spiritual leaders for guidance and instruction in our lives. As Christians (followers of Christ should these leaders speak from their mind, or from what is written based on the word of God? This show will examine things said by men and woman claiming to be Gods ministers to reveal whether or not they are speaking Gods word and doing his will. 1Pet 4: 11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.We hope you tune in and listen to our show. We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am all eastern time.
In Merle Haggard: The Running Kind, DAVID CANTWELL takes us on a revelatory journey through Haggard’s music and the life and times out of which it came. Taking in the entire breadth of the Hag’s career, David focuses especially on the 1960s and 1970s when Haggard created much of his best-known and most influential work. Listening closely to a masterpiece-crowded catalogue (including such songs as Today I Started Loving You Again, Okie from Muskogee, Sing Me Back Home, Mama Tried, Working Man Blues, and If We Make It through December, among many others), David Cantwell explores the fascinating contradictions - the desire for freedom in the face of limits set by the world or self-imposed, most of all - that define not only Haggard’s music and persona but the very heart of Country music. This book is published by the University of Texas Press as part of their American Music Series. Order the book from them here: http://utpress.utexas.edu/index.php/books/canmep
Music critic and longtime Haggard fan, DAVID CANTWELL is also the co-author of the acclaimed Heartaches By The Number: Country Music's 500 Greatest Singles, and his work has appeared in the Oxford American, Salon and No Depression, among other publications. He lives in Kansas City, Missouri.
Dr. Haggard instructs on protecting your mind. You have the mind of Christ because the Word says you have. That word “mind” means intellect. We have the intellect of Christ. Be strong in the Lord and in the Power of His might. We must watch closely, make supplication for all saints, and continually pray in the Spirit. The battlefield is in your mind. Either you control and protect your mind, or the devil has a part or all of it. It takes work to protect your mind. You protect your mind, your children’s minds, and the minds of the newly delivered. First, become a believer; it only works for believers.
Cremona, Alberta's Blake Reid's new album Rust showcases his status status as a true workingman’s poet, following in the footsteps of Merle Haggard and Tom T. Hall. At the same time, he is no traditionalist. The album’s first single, “Sounds Like A Song,” is the kind of hard-edged, instantly memorable track perfectly suited for a Saturday night play list, or as something to sing along with to make that long drive go a little bit faster. And as a testament to the power of songcraft, it’s also a reflection of the only real musical education Blake ever had, listening to AM radios installed in the trucks, tractors and combines he commandeered throughout his youth.
“I’ve always written songs, but during the years while performing in the club and rodeo circuits, we had to limit the amount of original material we were playing. In 2011 I decided to take a break from the band and really concentrate on writing songs that spoke to who I was, and to just be me without apology. I discovered right away how much people appreciated that, and I started building a new following. Getting a standing ovation the first time I played Big Valley Jamboree really confirmed it all for me, and since then I can’t see any way to do things other than just be who I am.”
And while much of the material on Rust is rooted in the Alberta soil that five generations of his family has farmed for over a century, the themes at the heart of the songs are universally relatable. For instance, many people have had the same fantasy captured in “Cowboys Were Kings” of somehow escaping fast-paced modern life and waking up in a ‘tumbleweed town’ or, as on the powerful “Ghosts,” been in their favourite bar and had the full weight of its history, and the people who used to drink there, suddenly come to light.
