Continuing with the subtle folk streak running beneath The Legend of Bonnie & Clyde and Mama Tried, Merle Haggard turned in one of his finest efforts to date in 1969's Pride in What I Am. While there are no flat-out classics outside of "I Take a Lot of Pride in What I Am" -- it's the only track on the album here that was a hit -- the album is certainly not lacking in strong material. In fact, it gains considerable strength from a diversity of material, where the rolling, folk-tinged sound epitomized by the title song is balanced by twangy, spare country and bits of hard honky tonk, blues, and cowboy, not to mention the slyly inventive arrangement on his version of Lefty Frizzell's "It Meant Goodbye to Me When You Said Hello to Him." There are also hints of the direction Hag would take in the near future, including a Jimmie Rodgers song (his tribute to the singing brakeman, Same Train, Different Time, would follow next), and the encroaching celebration of a time passed, though his cover of Red Simpson's "I Think We're Livin' in the Good Old Days." There is another Simpson cover in "Somewhere on Skid Row," but what fuels Pride in What I Am is a selection of graceful, low-key minor masterworks from Haggard himself, who explores gentler territory with "The Day the Rains Came" and "I Can't Hold Myself In Line," while kicking up the tempo with the delightful "I'm Bringin' Home Good News" and laying back with the steady-rolling "I Just Want to Look at You One More Time." None of these may be among his most celebrated songs, but they're all small gems that illustrate what a fine songwriter he is. They also help form the core of this subtly adventurous, rich album that may not be among his flashiest, but is another excellent record by one of the most reliable recording artists in country history.

Merle Haggard, der Bösewicht der Country Music

Alkohol, Gefängnis, Drogen, Misere. Merle Haggard kannte sich bei allen gut aus und sang sein Leben lang über Amerika mit seinen Außenseitern und Zukurzgekommenen. Er, der den Bakersfield Sound bekannt machte, läuterte die Country Music, weil er seine Aussage noch beißender machen wollte.

Ray Charles im Wandel seines Stils

Ray Charles, der Gründervater der Soulmusik, dessen Karriere ein halbes Jahrhundert andauerte, lässt sich nicht mit einer Handvoll Hits zusammenfassen, die jeder kennt. Er ist vor allem ein Meister des musikalischen Crossover, der High-End-Variante, die aus der Vermischung von Genres eine Kunst macht, indem sie sich dem einen annähert, um das andere besser zu erschließen. Ray Charles säkularisierte den Gospel, bereicherte den Blues, spielte Jazz, sang Country und kam dem Rock'n'Roll nahe. Ein Blick auf seinen einzigartigen Stil anhand der fünf genannten Genres.

Die Frauen aus Nashville

Für Frauen ist es nicht leicht, sich in der chauvinistischen Szene der "Music City", der Wiege der Country-Musik, zu behaupten. Aber im Laufe der Jahre haben es doch einige geschafft, die starren Denkweisen aufzubrechen. Wie etwa diese zehn Pionierinnen und Revolutionärinnen, die in Nashville mit ihren Westernstiefeln auf die Tische gestiegen sind – und sich durchgesetzt haben.
