    Merle Haggard at Paramount Theatre One of country musics enduring legends, GRAMMY-winning guitarist, fiddler and vocalist Merle Haggard has enjoyed a 50-year career as a giant of American songwriting and early originator of the California-bred take on country music called the Bakersfield Sound. For this special evening, the infamous writer of Okie from Muskogee performs a tribute to a pair of artists who profoundly affected his early life as a musician, fellow country music icon Johnny Cash and Western swing pioneer Bob Wills. It was Wills music that first reached the troubled young Haggard when his brother gave his battered guitar to the then twelve year old as a gift, and it remained a constant as the troubled youth bounced from juvenile detention to jail before embracing music as a path to turn his life around. An inmate at San Quentin prison in 1958, Haggard attended Cashs first-ever prison performance, which was the inspiration for Haggard to finally clean up his act for good. The momentous career that followed saw Haggard inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1977 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1994. He was named a Kennedy Center honoree in 2010. Haggards latest album is his best-selling 2015 collaboration with fellow country legend Willie Nelson, Django and Jimmie, their salute to gypsy guitar pioneer Django Reinhardt and early country vocal star Jimmie Rodgers.Artist Websitemerlehaggard.com"As singer, instrumentalist and songwriter, Merle Haggard has few peers in the soul-tearing world of country music " People Magazine"he remains a master performer, storyteller and bandleader " Rolling StoneShows You Might Also Enjoy...
