Merle Haggard, the Okie from Muskogee has a rags to riches true story that is as compelling as his music is classic. His story defies the imagination, truly. From petty criminal who did time in prison as a young man, to world-famous music icon -- his music, much like the man, refuses to fit neatly into any category. Some call it country and some rock-and-roll but everyone calls it classic Americana, from a classic American.
Going strong at 75, Haggard still makes and plays music that packs concert halls. He was honored in 2010 at the Kennedy Center Honors and has received numerous Grammy, CMA and ACM awards, to name a few. His list of hits including nearly 40 number one’s, include; “Workin’ Man Blues,” “Sing Me Back Home,” and “Mamma Tried.”
Take time to plan to see this legendary performer live, you won’t be sorry.
