Merle Haggard’s Tour Bus Is Up For Sale In Texas

Jan 25, 2018

Merle Haggard fans have the chance to place a bid on the late country legend’s tour bus.

Burley Auction Gallery in New Braunfels is offering the 2008 Motor Coach Industries bus in an auction on Feb. 10. The vehicle features a Santa Fe Super Chief insignia, a master bedroom, four bunks, a lounge area and a vintage train horn.

Here it is from several angles and to the tune of “Workin’ Man Blues.”

Haggard's hits included "Okie From Muskogee" and "Sing Me Back Home." He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1994, the same year he won a Grammy for best male country vocal performance in "That's the Way Love Goes."

He died on April 6, 2016 — his 79th birthday.

Texas Standard aired this tribute to “Hag” the next day. He wasn’t born in Texas, but he got here as fast as he could.
