Merle Haggard Ryman Auditorium Tickets
Haggard appearances may generally be off-putting for people. However, Merle Haggard came along and completely flipped the repulsive connotations on their head. And as he matured, his own countenance started embodying more and more of his name thus enhancing the deep and rich appeal of his scintillating legacy. The upcoming Merle Haggard Ryman Auditorium event is going to be a veritable testament to this iconic member of country's pantheon.
A Californian native, Merle Haggard grew up during the Depression Era and WWII. His parents were migrant workers and Merle spent most of his childhood in a scrubby Bakersfield suburb. This coupled with his father's passing when Merle was only nine led to the latter playing hooky and engage in juvenile delinquency. After bouts of repeated incidents of petty larceny interspersed with stints in juvenile detention centers and escapes, followed by full-fledged crimes committed as an adult and serving hard time in the San Quentin prison, Merle took to digging ditches and building up The Bakersfield Sound.
Since releasing his debut record Strangers in 1965 under Capitol, the headliner of the Merle Haggard Ryman Auditorium concert has built up an impressive repertoire of 76 studio albums that include almost a dozen chart-topping records and entail more than three dozen number 1 singles.
Merle Haggard has amassed two dozen awards and honors, including a trifecta of Grammys and inductions into the Kennedy Center Honors and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
