Strangers is the debut studio album by Merle Haggard. Initially Haggard refused, opting to remain loyal to Owen and Talley, but Tally Records did not have the resources to break Haggard, who was creating quite a buzz in California

Strangers (Merle Haggard album). Strangers was a hit album, reaching number 9 on the Billboard country albums chart. In Merle Haggard: The Running Kind, Haggard biographer David Cantwell writes, "Haggard didn't come off as a particularly distinctive artist on Strangers, but his derivativeness was of a high and promising quality.

The discography for American country music singer Merle Haggard includes fifty-nine studio albums, three Christmas albums, three Gospel albums, five instrumental albums featuring his backing band the Strangers, as well as several live and compilation albums.

1996 is the forty-ninth studio album by American country singer Merle Haggard, released in 1996. It was his last studio album on the Curb Records label, and was considered something of a return to form for Haggard despite poor sales.

The Strangers were Merle Haggard's backing band.

Anyone who doubts that Merle Haggard was one of the very finest country acts of the 1960s should give a listen to this album, which captured Hag when his gifts as a singer and songwriter were at their peak - and before the success of "Okie from Muskogee" encouraged his grandstanding tendencies (and got him unfairly branded as a reactionary).
