The day Merle Haggard passed away the country music world shook. Everyone was hit with the untimely death of a music icon. Some posted on Facebook and other social media, Josh Morningstar wrote a song. Morningstar, a veteran musician from Funkstown, Maryland, didn't just mourn the passing of an icon, he mourned the death of one of his biggest influences as a country artist.

Josh said, "Merle Haggard was one of my favorite artists. His influence and his fingerprint is all over my music. The day he died it affected me, just like it did millions of others. I sat down and wrote a song, "Merle Haggard Died Today." I hope you enjoy it."
