Washington, Feb 06 (ANI): Country music legend Merle Haggard, who is recovering from cancer surgery, has condemned young country stars, insisting they are having hits with all the wrong tunes.

The 71-year-old says he hates the songs of country music's current crop of leading ladies, with Carrie Underwood topping the list.

"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," Contactmusic quoted Haggard as telling America's Globe.

"Anyone can do a record nowadays - you don't have to stay in key; they'll (producers) put you in key," he added. (ANI)
