OK, in the interest of full disclosure, I've said it before and I'll say it again.

Merle Haggard was (and is) the greatest singer in country music history. So this is particularly great news for someone like me!

The Tennessean is reporting that a brand new Merle Haggard Museum and Saloon will be opening in downtown Nashville in the summer of 2018.

The museum is slated to have a wide array of Merle memorabilia, including instruments, awards, clothing and more. It will be a walk through the Hag's Hall of Fame legendary career.

As for the saloon, Merle's Meat + Three will be serving up 'good southern comfort food with a twist of soul'.

And the location will be fantastic, at 121 3rd Avenue South, right next to the Cash and Cline museum's. Now that's a walk worth taking!
