The age old question for any country music artist is– who is the greatest country music artist of all-time. Vince Gill, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, and seller of over 28 million albums has an opinion– it’s not Hank Williams Sr. or the Carter Family, it’s Merle Haggard.
In 2010, Merle was given the Kennedy Center Honor, an honor given to those who have made a lifetime of contributions to American culture, he’s had 38 No. 1 singles, has a street named after him and countless other awards.
We agree with Vince’s pick.
