Merle Haggard, The Impressionist

We all know Merle Haggard was a great talented songwriter and singer. But a clip from The Glen Campbell Show also shows his impressionist talents.  He was pretty good at copying the voices of some other country music greats.

In this video, Haggard impersonates several great country singers.  He does his version of Marty Robbins, Hank Snow, Buck Owens, and Johnny Cash.

Also in this segment, Buck Owens and Johnny Cash show up to join in the fun. Check it out.

See our previous post on Johnny Cash’s impersonation of Elvis Presley.
