Blaze Foley- Enamel Pin

8.00

One of my favorite songs of all time is a song called "If I Could Only Fly" by Merle Haggard. A friend in high school made a mixtape for a dude she liked and she put it on there. I was still listening to that version, on a somewhat regular rotation until about a year ago when I found out that Merle Haggard didn't write the song. I was looking it up, and found this guy Blaze Foley. 

I listened to his version... And it was like 10 times better. Imagine one of your favorite songs suddenly 10 times better. I couldn't believe it and didn't understand how I could have never heard of this guy before.

So I started looking into his life... Holy shit.
