Marty Haggard in Concert
Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa will be hosting its annual Winter Music Series starting in January. The Winter Music Series offers guests the opportunity to enjoy musical performances in an intimate setting. The ticketed event is open to both resort guests and non-resort guests and provides an unparalleled experience with performances every Friday and Saturday under the climate-controlled tent on the resort’s event lawn.
Marty Haggard was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA, and everyone knows his Dad, Merle Haggard. Haggard considers his dad the greatest singer/songwriter ever, and a lot of people agree with that. Growing up, Haggard was able to travel with his dad and witness the writing and recording of all his great songs. He also had the opportunity to know many of the country greats, including Bob Wills, Lefty Frizzell, and Johnny Cash, just to name a few.
Haggard’s love for his dad and his music eventually inspired him to record a tribute to Merle Haggard “My Dad.” In 2010, he recorded the first album of this project with a 15-song CD of Hag classics. This led to a tribute show in Branson, MO, where he performed for two years. In 2011, Marty released a tribute to Merle Haggard “My Dad, Volume Two.” He then took the show on the road throughout the country, as well as to Canada, Ireland, Scotland and England.
