Pay Homage to the Life of a Country Legend with Marty Haggard Live in Concert
This Saturday at Bauer Community Center, Marty Haggard, oldest son of the legendary Merle Haggard, pays tribute to his father through stories and songs. Come enjoy an evening of real country music with neighbors and friends!
Marty Haggard was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. Of course, everyone knows his father, Merle Haggard, who Marty considers "the best country singer/songwriter ever." Marty was privileged to be a part of his father’s career, having the opportunity to meet many of the country greats as well as other celebrities and dignitaries.
In 1979, Marty began touring with his own band, then in 1981 signed with Dimension Records. From 1983 to 1985 he travelled with his father, singing harmony and playing guitar. In 1986, he signed with MTM Records and released Trains Make Me Lonesome, a song which garnered him a nomination as best new male vocalist. In 1995, Marty signed with Critique/BMG. In 1999, Marty began writing and singing spiritual songs.
Marty's love for his father’s music inspired him to begin a project titled A Tribute to Merle Haggard: "My Dad." In 2010, he cut the first album in his tribute consisting of 15 Hag classics. Marty has spent the last 10 years performing A Tribute to Merle Haggard: "My Dad" all over the United States and Canada plus England, Ireland and Scotland.
Advance tickets to A Tribute to Merle Haggard are 25 dollars. Day-of tickets are 30 dollars at the door. All ages are welcome to attend.
