Ailing Merle Haggard has taken aim at country music's current crop of leading ladies - because he hates their songs. The cranky star, who is recovering from cancer surgery, has named Carrie Underwood at the top of his hate list, and fears young country stars are having hits with all the wrong tunes.
Haggard, 71, tells America's Globe, "Carrie Underwear, or Underwood. I mean, I like her, but where's the songs. You have to get past the belly buttons and the videos.
"Anyone can do a record nowadays - you don't have to stay in key; they'll (producers) put you in key."
