Country Music Legend & SuperStar,
is one country star whose life was profoundly
and dramatically changed
by the late Ronald Reagan.
Haggard had a ragged early childhood and,
by his teenage years,
became a runaway and a juvenile delinquent.
After years of sporadic jail time
for small-time offenses,
he spent hard time years behind bars at San Quentin Prison for burglary.
Merle Haggard was in San Quentin Prison
when Johnny Cash came to town
to do one of his big concerts
at San Quentin.
Merele was in prison there
when Johnny Cash recorded
A Boy Named Sue
@ San Quentin Prison.
He received a full pardon from then-California Gov. Ronald Reagan in 1972.
On the eve of the late President Reagan's funeral, CMT.com spoke with Haggard about Reagan's passing and what it meant to him.
