If you've ever had the pleasure of talking to, or watching a performance from Rockford native Mo Pitney, you know he has a huge love and appreciation for the true legends of Country music. Mo happened to be in the recording studio when he heard about the death of Merle Haggard, and what happened next was truly beautiful.

 

 

Thank goodness someone was smart enough to get this performance on video. Mo, you did Merle very proud!

Be a part of Q98.5's tribute to the life and amazing career of Merle Haggard this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. with the Legends of Country Crew. It will be 3 hours full of favorite Merle memories, songs, and your requests live on the radio, and also streaming online here.

Rest easy, Mr Haggard. You sure will be missed.
