Bob Dylan Clarifies Merle Haggard Remarks

Thursday, 19 February 2015 - 19:08

Bob Dylan is adamant he has no hard feelings towards American country and Western song writer Merle Haggard, despite his controversial comments at a pre-Grammy Awards tribute.

The folk rock icon was honoured as the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year at a Los Angeles benefit gala earlier this month, and during his speech he singled out Haggard for not supporting him at the beginning of his career.

However, Dylan now insists he wasn't taking a swipe at Haggard, saying in a recent interview published on his own website, he wasn't dissing Haggard.
