Country Legend Merle Haggard to Take Robinson Center Stage in AprilMerle Haggard

The man behind country music’s working man’s anthems, legendary troubadour Merle Haggard, has hung his soul on the line with dozens of songs that tell tales of hard living. See the legend at work onstage at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 2 at the Robinson Center Music Hall, 414 W. Markham, Little Rock.

Haggard weaves his one-of-a-kind vocal textures, lead guitar and fiddle to reveal the heart and soul of a musician who may be the most well-rounded country talent ever to take the stage.

From his first national hit, “Sing A Sad Song,” to classics like “Okie from Muskogee,” “Big City” and “Silver Wings,” Haggard has brought a lyrical depth to country music. His chart-toppers include “Lonesome Fugitive,” “Hungry Eyes,” and “Working Man Blues.” One of his all-time favorites, “Today I Started Loving You Again,” has been recorded by more than 400 artists.

He continues to tour with one of country music’s finest road bands, The Strangers, who have won the Academy of Country Music’s Touring Band of the Year Award.
