Marty Haggard

A tribute to my dad Merle Haggard

Marty Haggard is the son of famed country singer-songwriter Merle Haggard, who passed away on April 6, 2016.

Marty toured with his father during the ’80s, singing harmony and playing guitar. In 1986 he released the song “Trains Make Me Lonesome,” which garnered him a nomination for Top New Male Vocalist from the Academy of Country Music. 

Marty’s love for his dad’s music inspired him to begin a project titled A Tribute to Merle Haggard in 2010, which has led to two Merle Haggard tribute albums.

Marty has spent the past five years performing across the United States and Canada, and throughout the UK. He is currently working on a new album of his own music.
