A true American outlaw who is unafraid to stir up a little controversy, Merle Haggard is best known as the superb country music songwriter behind the fiercely personal "Mama Tried," where he describes turning 21 years old in prison, and the hippie baiting "Okie from Muskogee." His latest CD is his first foray into bluegrass music, which is appropriately titled The Bluegrass Sessions. (See story pg. XX.) [ST]
