Merle Haggard has passed away today, according to his manager. He was 79.
April 7, 2016:

Longtime DeadJournalist contributor Jenni Rowell passed away on Saturday, August 15, 2016 after a lengthy battle with cancer. She was 33.
Rowell was diagnosed with cancer in 2013. She was a writer, entrepreneur, foodie and lover of music.
