Bobby Blue Bland Sings Merle Haggard

Bobby Blue Bland covering the Merle Haggard hit song Today I Started Loving You Again.

I never thought I would never  see the day a rhythm and blues artist  would cover a Merle Haggard song but Bobby Blue Bland covers Today I Started Loving You Again which bears almost no resemblance to the hit that Haggard and Bonnie Owens  released in 1968.

Bobby Blue Bland is now 80 years old and has been active in rhythm and blues since the early 1950’s.

  1. Been listening to Bobby Blue Bland since the 60’s and this is the first time I’ve seen him perform. Great video.

    1. Bobby Blue Bland has been recording music since when I was in second grade at Pineville Elementary in 1951. He has his own style. I can’t think of anyone that sounds like him.
