Wondering about the duet Merle Haggard and George Strait Sang on the ACM Salutes The Troops Special?

The much anticipated duet from the two former ACM Entertainer of the Year winners was a song that Merle Haggard wrote in 1970 called 'The Fightin' Side Of Me.' The song was written about the tension and controversy of the Vietnam War. The patriotic social statement hit the top of the charts in 1970. The song was recently performed on ACM Presents: An All Star Tribute To The Troops on CBS as a duet between Haggard and Strait.
