20 Questions With Merle Haggard

12. What do you think about mainstream country music now? How would you describe it?

"Perfect" is a good word. Perfect, always perfect. Nobody's gonna take a breath. You're not gonna hear breathing on it. Used to, you could hear Elvis breathe. You knew he was a man. But nowadays, it seems like everything is digitally perfect -- boringly perfect.

13. Do you think country music will ever return to its roots?

No. There's no roots there.
