If you’re a fan of Merle Haggard you’re going to love how his youngest son Ben Haggard recreates his music. Ben is a very talented musician in his own right with a voice that’s reminiscent of his famous father. He played lead guitar in his father’s band, The Strangers since his early teen years.
He recalls Merle telling him, “You’d be an idiot not to take my guitar and my bus, not to sing my songs for as long as you can …Go out there and play until there’s nobody to play to.” And that is precisely what Ben Haggard has done over the past years since his father’s passing. His talent is undeniable, he’s proven as natural a performer as you’d expect from someone with his DNA.
