I caught Guitar Center interview on TV (Direct TV, ch. 239) with Merle last night, interspersed with songs from what looks like his latest band. Boy, are they good! Each song a jewel, each musician a master. Soulful sax weaving in and out, elegant pedal steel guitar…

Here’s Okie from Muskogee . I’ve heard him say this song has many meanings.A bit tongue in cheek maybe?

Merle fans, try to find the other songs in this session, actually better than crowd-pleaser Okie.
