    Yes, I do think so..
    Still like watching some of the reruns.
    TV was so much better back then and so less choices too.
    He made 71 top songs ...and music was so much better back then too. You could actually dance and understand
    want was being sung..
    A real legend... won't be no other like him.

    Not a host.... but an occasional guest/performer. You maybe thinking of Roy Clark.... Merle Haggard was a country great like Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams. Very popular in the 60-70-80s... not that I'd remember way back then.

    Thanks for clarifying that.
    Yes, he was a great country singer like the others you mentioned. Still listen to them.

    Actually you may be thinking of Buck Owens, who along with Roy Clark hosted Hee-Haw. Buck was from Bakersfield California as was Merle Haggard.

    And that's how "Buck" got his name.

    Owens was born on a farm in Sherman, Texas, to Alvis Edgar Owens, Sr. and his wife, Maicie Azel Ellington.[3]
    "'Buck' was a donkey on the Owens farm," Rich Kienzle wrote in the biography About Buck.[4] "When Alvis Jr. was three or four years old, he walked into the house and announced that his name also was "Buck." That was fine with the family, and the boy's name was Buck from then on."[5] He attended public school for grades 1–3 in Garland, Texas.[6]
