PreSonus wants to express our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Merle Haggard. He will go down in history as one of the greatest performers and songwriters in country music. Like any great performer, Merle never stopped touring, even to the very end—when he was still packing houses and performing to sold-out crowds.
What a great run Merle had: he made countless hit records while leaving an immeasurable influence on generations of artists and fans. Merle wrote great songs, played by his own rules, and went out doing what he loved. A guy can’t ask for much more than that.
We take a lot of pride to have worked with Merle, and are honored to know that in some small way, our stuff had a hand in his music-making. Our thoughts and prayers are with his band and family.
