Merle Haggard Country Music Awards

This Merle Haggard Country Music Awards page is in my opinion a small list of accomplishments that Merle has contributed to the music industry for over half a century.

Merle Haggard was first voted Top New Male Vocalist in 1965 and received the Top Male Vocalist award the following year.

His accomplishments did not stop there.
