Aren't the Grammy's supposed to honor all genres of music? If they could honor the passing of what they called the loss of huge  icons, why was Merle Haggard not thrown in there. He should have been given his spotlight!

Merle Haggard was one of the biggest pioneers in country music. He helped mold and make country music into what it is today. The artist these days couldn't hold a candle to what Willie, Waylon, Merle, and Johnny have done.

Hag didn't have to have a mega mansion, crazy outfits, or wild videos to be a superstar.

Merle Haggard deserved his own tribute moment because in the world of country music he was just as big in our world as Prince and George Michael were in other worlds.

Many want to boycott the Grammys this morning because Adele beat out Beyonce,I want to boycott the Grammys because they don't play fair to country music.

If you are going to honor one you need to honor all.

Don't get me wrong Prince was great and George Michael was huge in his time but come on, they couldn't hold a candle to the Hag!
