Merle Haggard Responds to Bob Dylan’s MusiCares Person of the Year Diss

Image Courtesy Capitol RecordsBob Dylan's 35-minute speech as the guest of honor at Friday night's MusiCares Person of the Year event included a mention of his 2005 touring partner, Merle Haggard. Bob said "Merle Haggard didn't even think much of my songs. I know he didn't. He didn't say that to me, but I know way back when he didn't."

Merle took to his Facebook page to disagree with Bob's statement. The post says, "Bob Dylan I've admired your songs since 1964. 'Don't Think Twice' Bob, Willie [Nelson] and I just recorded it on our new album."

Bob said Merle's Bakersfield, California contemporary Buck Owens did like Dylan's songs, and he'd rather have Buck's blessing than Merle's anyway.

Hunter Hayes Loves Rubbing Shoulders with the Legends at the Grammy Awards

Image Courtesy Warner Music NashvilleHunter Hayes debuted his song "Invisible" on last year's Grammy telecast, and now he's earned a Best Country Solo Performance nomination for his recording of the song. Looking back on his experience attending the Grammy Awards last year, Hunter recalls being starstruck by all the big names he met at the show.

"I just so happened to run into Sir Paul McCartney backstage and talked to him last year," Hunter says. "That's not the kind of stuff that happens at any other show, you know? So, it was special."

Hunter loves being in the audience for all the big Grammy performances, and he's quick to let his fellow artists know when he's enjoyed what they did on stage.

Says Hunter, "I got to tell Imagine Dragons how much I loved their performance last year. Stuff like that, you know? You gotta love that."

Hunter will be on hand for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards airing Sunday night at 8 ET on CBS.
