This working man's journey began several decades back in Bakersfield, California. And before long, Merle Haggard and his music were making their way across the country. In fact, he's crossed paths with Cracker Barrel quite a few times along the way. After all, we've been on the road since 1969. That's why we're proud to bring you this exclusive CD featuring both old and new blue-collar ballads from the poet of the common man. The CD includes six new songs never before released plus six new recordings of his classics.

May 30, 2007 — After 40 years of traveling America's highways, Merle Haggard has found a new musical home at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. When Cracker Barrel asked Merle to do an exclusive CD, he sifted through more than 600 songs in his archives and selected 12 previously unreleased recordings that pay tribute to the working man.
With the release of Working Man's Journey, Merle has blended new songs with new recordings of some of his classics. "I had the working man in mind when I went through the archives," Merle said. "All of these songs seem to work together. We're talking about a guy who spent his lifetime writing songs for the common man."
On sale now at 559 Cracker Barrel locations and online at crackerbarrel.com, Working Man's Journey features six new songs that contribute to Merle's status as the "voice of the common man." Fans will quickly identify with "C'mon Sixty-Five," a tribute to the working man who dreams of retirement.
Merle said the CD's previously unreleased version of "Shade Tree Fix-It Man" reminds him of fishing trips with his favorite uncle, a man who often fixed his own truck. "I think back to when I was nine years old," he said. "We would throw a two-man boat in the back of that silver truck. Every time I see an old 1931 Model-A pickup, it takes me back."
