On August 4 at 7:30pm, Merle Haggard will bring his hit song collection to The Tri-Lakes Center, 2527 State Highway 248 in Branson.
The Branson stop is a rare one for Haggard who plays to big audiences everywhere he goes. Bob Cannella with Up Close Concerts, who is presenting the event, says hard work on both sides made this one night appearance possible.
Haggard regularly plays to sold out audiences.
The Tri-Lakes Center, with 2500 seats, provides a great opportunity to see Merle Haggard without battling the elements at large outdoor festivals or the high ticket prices at casino showrooms.
Haggard has 38 Number 1 hits and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
But that doesn’t even scratch the surface of the impact Merle Haggard has had on the world of Country Music.
The respect he receives in the music industry and among music fans in general extends far outside of the country music world.
In the past couple years Haggard has shared the stage with Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones at huge arenas throughout America.
