Merle Haggard - "Big City". A decade-plus out from "Okie" in 1981, this chart-topper had lyrical content that was in line with some of his best work - a song about the plight of the working man. Haggard’s tribute to slower pace in life made for one of his biggest hits of his run on Epic Records, thanks in part to some tasty fiddle licks from veteran instrumentalist (and one time Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys member) Tiny Moore. 19.

It has been a cruel season of loss in the music community, felt most recently with the departure of Merle Haggard, the titan of American song who passed away last Wednesday on the occasion of his 79th birthday. Along with Buck Owens, the Oildale, California native helped establish the venerable strain of country music known as the Bakersfield Sound, authored countless classic hits, and ultimately staked a claim as the poet-laureate of a proud, working-class America
