Merle Haggard Tribute in Nashville

 


Over 30 country and rock artists turned out Thursday night for "Sing Me Back Home: The Music of Merle Haggard," a salute to the country legend on the one-year anniversary of his death and what would have been his 80th birthday.

Keith Richards, Kenny Chesney, John Mellencamp, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams Jr. and Dierks Bentley were among the performers who interpreted songs from Haggard's more than 50-year career at the concert in Nashville. 

We're being told that camera crews were present at the show, so we're assuming there will  likely be a TV special of the concert later in the year. As soon as we know more info, we'll pass it along to you!
