Haggard's son accepts Luke Bryan's apology

  • Updated

Two princes of country music kings have given a royal pardon to singer Luke Bryan, who apologized for making ill-advised remarks last week while invoking the names of outlaw greats Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and the late Waylon Jennings.

Bryan, defending his music’s go-to topics of bonfires and brewskis, said: “I don’t do cocaine and run around. So I’m not going to sing outlaw country. I like to hunt fish, ride around on my farm ... and that’s what I sing about. It’s what I know. I don’t know anything about laying in the gutter, strung out on drugs. I don’t really want to do that.”
