Listen: Country Legend Merle Haggard’s Final Song ‘Kern River Blues’

The country music world was shocked to hear of the death of esteemed performer, Merle Haggard, in April. The singer reportedly has a lot of unreleased music in the vault, but Kern River Blues was the final track recorded by him.

Kern River Blues is a traditional country number of the best sort. Featuring a variety of musical accompaniment from guitar (played by his son, Ben) to horns giving the track a free-flowing Latin-country sound. If anything the track is a sad reminder of the talent that Haggard still held months before his sad passing.

10% of the proceeds of the track will go to benefit homeless charities.

Listen to the track below. Purchase from Haggard’s website or iTunes.
