The description of the event from the organizer:

“Join Marty Haggard, the oldest son of the legendary Merle Haggard, as he shares some of the greatest country music every written and recorded. Marty will share stories of the past, growing up by his dad’s side while he was writing and recording these timeless classic songs. Marty will be accompanied by world-class musicians and the show will include some of Marty’s original songs as well. Marty has had his own accomplished career, performing country music for forty years, but about ten years ago, his love for his dad and his music inspired Marty to pay tribute to his dad through stories and songs. If you love real country music, you’ll enjoy this show! Marty will be available after the show to meet, greet and sign autographs.

Tickets are $25 if purchased in advance and will be $30 on day of show at the door.
