The names Haggard and Muskogee often go hand-in-hand. Merle Haggard’s son, Scott is keeping that tradition alive by making Muskogee a stop on his tour. Scott Haggard will play at the Muskogee Civic Center, June 19.
“You can’t think of Muskogee without the song Okie From Muskogee coming to mind,” said Tera Shows, spokesperson for the City of Muskogee. “It helped to put Muskogee on the map and we are proud that Scott has chosen to perform here. Scott is known to pay tribute to his dad, so I expect that we can hear our famous song at this concert.”
The younger Haggard is one of four musically talented sons born to Merle. He bears a striking resemblance to his dad in both appearance, voice and music style.
Tickets to the show are $20 and are available online at ticketstorm.com. The show will begin at 8 pm with a meet and greet starting at 7 pm. For more information about the show contact the Muskogee Civic Center at 918-684-6363.
