Merle Haggard is coming in Concert March 6th, 2009, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

I remember as a child, Sunday was my Mom’s cleaning day. So she would get up, put on a stack of country music records and get busy with the house work. One of her favorite albums was Merle haggard’s “Mama Tried.” I grew up on that music. It’s as home grown as fried chicken and mashed potatoes (And not the instant kind either). In fact when I started playing guitar and learned how to play the entire album just because I wanted to be able to play along with it.

I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Merle in Concert yet but it looks like I am going this time. He’s 71 and still touring. You can’t say that about many performers. You bet I’m going to do all I can do to be there and sing along with him!! You need to go to, He is a real American Legend! Here’s the ticket info!!
