About Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard
Pioneers of Texas Country music, they pretty much told Nashville that they could kiss their ass and came to be called Outlaw Country ever since. I recall Waylon in an interview (70's) regarding him not bending to Nashvilles' will, and he said something to the effect that he and Willie Nelson could go to Texas, play Houston, Dallas, Austin, and El Paso one weekend nite a month for as long as they cared to.... and still have more money than they could spend.
