There’s no doubt about it, Merle Haggard is one of the most talented musicians of our time.
Not only can he write, sing, and play guitar, he is also a master impersonator! While appearing on the Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, Campbell brought up Haggard’s secret talent.
Turns out the talent is not so secret anymore because at just about every show, Haggard reveals he is asked to sing like one of his fellow country stars. He kicked it off with a spot-on impression of Marty Robbins singing his hit “Devil Woman”, then as Hank Snow singing his song “Singing The Blues”.
Haggard followed it up with Buck Owens’ “Love’s Gonna Live Here Again” and even did Owens’ signature facial expressions! He was in for the surprise of a lifetime when Buck Owens himself walked on stage looking not so happy!
After a few seconds, Owens joined him in the chorus, then said how much he enjoys Haggard’s talent. He even made a request – to hear Haggard’s impression of Johnny Cash.
“Johnny Cash? He’d kill me,” Haggard said. After a bit of convincing, Haggard began singing “Jackson”, and he sounded just like Cash! He was even making fun of the way Cash plays guitar.
Before you know it, Cash turns up and Haggard couldn’t believe it! Luckily all these guys are friends and they know it’s all in good fun!
Watch all of his impressions in the video below.
