Written by 

art haggardLegendary country singer Merle Haggard will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin.

 

The word “legend” usually makes an appearance at some point when discussing Haggard. The word is an acknowledgement of his artistry and his standing as the poet of the common man. It’s a tribute to his commercial success and to the lasting mark he has made on American music as a whole. Studying, analyzing and observing the details of life around him, Haggard relays what he sees, hears and feels through his songs. In addition to 40 #1 hits, Haggard has charted scores of Top Ten songs. He has won nearly every music award imaginable, both as a performer and as a songwriter. In 1994 Haggard was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Opening act is Edens Edge.

Tickets are $39, $47 and $55.
