Country music legend Merle Haggard is is also coming to the venue. He perform on Wednesday, November 11th.
Haggard, a songwriter, singer, guitarist, fiddler, and instrumentalist helped create the Bakersfield sound, which is characterized by the unique twang of Fender Telecaster and the unique mix with the traditional country steel guitar sound, new vocal harmony styles in which the words are minimal, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville sound recordings of the same era. Haggard was aligned with the growing outlaw country movement, and has continued to release successful albums through the 1990s and into the 2000s. In 1994, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1997, he was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.
Tickets for both shows go on sale this Friday.
