Merle Haggard highway open for business

A stretch of highway near Redding, California has officially been named the Merle Haggard Memorial Overpass.
Located next to the Johnny Cash Museum, the road is just over 10 miles from the late country music legend’s home in Palo Cedro, California, where he died in April, 2016, aged 79.
Haggard’s widow and his daughter Janessa dedicated the memorial on 25 October (17), after fans raised money for the highway tribute.
There are also plans afoot to create a Merle Haggard museum in his adopted hometown Nashville, Tennessee. It will open next door to a museum honouring his longtime friend Cash.
