THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED
AEG Live presents “The Poet” Merle Haggard live in concert on Sunday, January 15, 2012 at the Township Auditorium!
Emerging from prison in the 1960s, Merle Haggard has become one of the true giants of country music, as a singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist. With his hard biting electric guitar, he almost singlehandedly introduced the electric sound to country music. Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band “The Strangers” helped create the Bakersfield Sound, characterized by twangy telecaster guitars, tight vocal harmonies, and a rough edge not heard on the polished Nashville Sound recordings of that era. By the 1970s, he was aligned with the growing outlaw country movement, and has continued to release successful albums through the 1990s and into the 2000s. His songs display unflinching personal honesty about such universal themes as love, loss, regret and redemption.
