Merle Haggard

Friday, September 06, 2013
7:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts - Franklin, NC

Event Details:

The word "legend" usually makes an appearance at some point when discussing Merle Haggard. It's an acknowledgement of his artistry and his standing as "the poet of the common man." It's a tribute to his incredible commercial success and to the lasting mark he has made, not just on country music, but on American music as a whole. It's apt in every way but one. The term imposes an aura of loftiness that's totally at odds with the grit and heart of Haggard's songs. "I'd be more comfortable with something like "professor," he once told a reporter, and the description suits him. Studying, analyzing and observing the details of life around him, Haggard relays what he sees, hears and feels through his songs. In addition to 40 #1 hits, Haggard has charted scores of Top Ten songs. He has won just about every music award imaginable, both as a performer and as a songwriter, and in 1994 was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
