Merle Haggard’s ‘A Tribute to the Best Damn Fiddle Player in the World (Or My Salute to Bob Wills)’ almost singlehandedly ushered in the Western Swing revival (the mantle of which would be taken up by Asleep at the Wheel), but it’s also just another example of how adept Haggard is at assuming the style and tone of his icons.  In this case, Merle was paying homage to the great Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys.  Maybe this’ll have only a narrow margin of interest for some of you, but I really recommend taking a look and listen to Merle Haggard tearing through ’San Antonio Rose‘ alongside the Texas Playboys.
