Legend, Merle Haggard

Dies on his birthday, at age 79.

“A 20-year-old married father, he was arrested for breaking into a cafe (drunk, he thought the booming business was closed) and spent nearly three years in San Quentin. He was paroled in 1960. In 1972, then–California governor Ronald Reagan expunged Haggard’s criminal record, granting him a full pardon.”
