TICKETS TORN IN HALF August 9,2007: MERLE HAGGARD- Alabama Theatre, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. What a treat to see a legend, one who truly appreciated his audience. This was a fantastic show and only cost us $35.00. I was so looking forward to hearing “Mama Tried” and so was the motherfucker who sat next to me, who sang along at the top of his lungs. After the song he said “Wow, wasn’t that great”. Being south of my comfort zone I hid my NY attitude and replied nicely, “Idiot”.
