Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's Best Troubador is an intimate portrait of artistic admiration for the late, great Merle Haggard. Best Troubador presents sixteen performances of songs plucked from Merle's extensive and varied catalog, each track reflecting a deeply personal appreciation and execution. As a long-time fan and follower of Haggard, Bonny's introspection and approach offer a singular and alluring take on storied songs written by a legendary performer. Recorded at home with friends old and new, Best Troubador is a record that can only have happened now, and it marks a place in time that will stand out in our future memories!
