“Thanks to everyone for your kind words about my Dad. He will be greatly missed by us all but his music will live on forever”
— Marty Haggard
Marty plans to continue the tribute to his Dad well into the future. As Marty’s song “Apple” proclaims,” The Apple never falls too far from its tree…
Marty’s love for his Dad’s music inspired him to begin a project titled A Tribute to Merle Haggard “My Dad”. In 2010, he cut the first album in his tribute consisting of 15 Hag classics. In 2010/2011 he performed at the Oak Ridge Boy’s Theatre and Clay Cooper Theatre in Branson, Missouri. In 2011 he also recorded his second Tribute album to his Dad. Marty has spent the last 5 years performing all over the United States and Canada plus England, Ireland and Scotland. He also performs yearly in Casa Grande Arizona at the Paramount Theatre. Marty is currently working on a new album of his own music and plans on more of his Dad’s songs soon.
