Merle Haggard
Singer, songwriter, remarkable musician, bandleader and historian, Merle Haggard may well be the most well rounded country talent ever to take stage. Over his career, he has been the pulse of an ever-lonesome fugitive, the voice of the Okie with an attitude, and the uncommon poet of the common working man. Few country devotees, be they old-timers or neophytes, are unfamiliar with the craggy Haggard mask of a thousand photographs. His accomplishments would lead some to sum him up with a cliché like “legend,” but legends are about the past . . . Haggard performs here TODAY, while his mind and talents flirt with a new millennium!
