Saturday music: If you don't love country, you hate 'mer'ca

Usually these posts have some esoteric reference to political events, but not this morning.  I'm sincere in my love of country music, but I'm particular.  I'm a big fan of Sturgill Simpson, and in full agreement with his recent rant making the rounds about the too-little-too-late honoring of Merle Haggard in certain circles.  Oh, and look at that reference to Jason Isbell.  I've been using "Devil Is My Running Mate," for the Saturday music series every time VP nominations have been in the news...  Why, it's almost as if there's such a thing as country music snobbery...

Anyway, Sturgill, Jason, Chris Stapleton, all great, and well worth a listen for fans of Merle Haggard.  Here's another that captures the spirit of Sturgill's attitude, but with more humor and a little less anger...
