Yet again, many of the lessons Merle talks about were learned in prison or stemming from his time there and #5 on our list is no exception.
The Hag revealed that dealing with the law has taught him many things, but above all, his takeaway lesson was: honesty.
When Men's Journal asked Merle "What did prison teach you?" his response was surprisingly humorous.
"Honesty. In that environment, if you tell someone you're gonna do something on a Tuesday, you better do it, because you can't get away from them!"
Merle's life certainly has touched the hearts of millions and he's been known as one of the most influential musicians in the history of country music.
With his passing on April 6th, 2016, the world truly lost a legend and a man who had so much more to teach the world.
