Merle Haggard and Bonnie Owens' Former California Home Is Up For Sale


The quaint Bakersfield, Calif. home that Merle Haggard lived in during the 1960s has just hit the market. The country music icon lived in the home on Brae Burn Drive with his second wife Bonnie Owens, his mother, Flossie and his children Dana, Marty, Noel and Kelli. According to Bakersfield.com, the family moved into the 3,620 sq. ft. home in 1969, just one year prior to the release of Merle's iconic track, "Okie From Muskogee."

Haggard's house hasn't changed much since back in the olden days. Wood paneling adorns part of the interior, which features 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It's within walking distance of the Bakersfield Country Club and has its own pool and accompanying pool house. The property is also located near the Kern River, not far from the mansion the family moved into after selling this home in the 1970s.
