Legendary country singer Merle Haggard will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, at Harrah’s Cherokee Event Center. Haggard has 40 #1 hits, a spot in the Country Music Hall of Fame and countless music awards for songwriting and performing.
His acute observation of life’s details is reflected in how he sings, writes music and performs, rightfully earning him standing as “the poet of the common man.”
