Branson celebrates the life and times of the legendary Merle Haggard in real country style when it welcomes Marty Haggard. Marty Haggard is the son of the great Merle Haggard, and he steps on stage with the same swagger and appeal that his father did for decades.
Merle is truly a country music icon and has racked up many awards in his career. In January 2011, after more than 45 years since his first album was released, he was inducted into California's Hall of Fame. He was also honored in December 2010 at the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony with President Obama. Merle continues to perform and released a new album in 2010, 'I Am What I Am,' and performed the title song on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno in February 2011.
Marty's show is a true tribute to his father's incredible music legacy that today lives on in Merle's ever popular hits. During the show, Marty Haggard will transport you back to the 1960s with tunes such as Skid Row, Someday We'll Look Back, If We Make It Through December, and The Roots of My Raising. Marty is a country star in his own right, taking after his dad's lead. Marty has released tunes like Charleston Cotton Mill,Trains Make Me Lonesome, and many others
