Dynasty Entertainment LLC and Marion Cultural & Civic Center are proud to announce Tribute to Merle Haggard “My Dad” starring Marty Haggard.
There are few musicians and singers who have such a revolutionary impact on the world of music as Merle Haggard. His lyrics and songwriting have influenced everything from bluegrass to rock ‘n roll – and his son Marty shares some of the insight and behind-the-scenes life of what it was like growing up with a world-famous dad.
Marty Haggard performs real country music and also honors his legendary father, Merle Haggard. Marty shares his dad's songs and his own personal stories of the past.
Marty was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. Of course, everyone knows his Dad, Merle Haggard. Marty considers his dad the greatest singer/songwriter ever and I’m sure a lot of people agree with that. Growing up, Marty was able to travel with his dad and witness the writing and recording of all his great songs. He also had the opportunity to know many of the country greats, like Bob Wills, Lefty Frizzell, and Johnny Cash, just to name a few.
Accompanying Marty is a five-piece band that helps recreate the sounds and songs of Merle Haggard. With Marty’s remarkable similarity to his father’s voice, he entertains audiences in a 90 minute production that covers the lengthy career of his father.
“A Show You Can’t Miss!”
“With one of the most famous father’s in country music, Marty Haggard delivers the songs and stories about his legendary father’s (Merle Haggard) music – as only a member of the family could!”
— Rolling Stone
