Saturday Music: Mama Tried

Welcome to Saturday and the weekly Saturday Music post.

When it came time for this week’s post, one name crossed my mind: Merle Haggard. When I put that name in the Google, “Mama Tried” quickly popped out.

This 1968 classic isn’t auto-biographical for Haggard, though he did spend time in San Quentin Prison where his brush with Johnny Cash propelled him toward a career in music.
