Country Singer Merle Haggard's Restless Soul

Country music icon Merle Haggard (1937-2016), had 38 of his albums appear on Billboard's country-music top 10 charts (more than a dozen made it to Number One). He also had 38 Number One singles. Haggard also had five wives and spent time in San Quentin Prison. Haggard had said, "There is a restlessness in my soul that I've never conquered, not with motion, marriages or meaning ... It's still there to a degree. And it will be till the day I die."
