An all-star tribute to Merle Haggard will be held in Nashville this April and Kenny Chesney is among the performers:
Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert are part of the all-star cast scheduled to pay tribute to the late Merle Haggard during an April 6 concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
Billed as “Sing Me Back Home: The Music of Merle Haggard,” the concert taping is also scheduled to include performances by John Mellencamp, Dierks Bentley, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams Jr., the Avett Brothers, Alison Krauss, Ronnie Dunn, Warren Haynes, Jamey Johnson, Kacey Musgraves, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lucinda Williams, John Anderson, Connie Smith and Bobby Bare.
April 6 would have been Haggard’s 80th birthday and also marks the one-year anniversary of his death.
Tickets to the Haggard tribute go on sale Friday (March 3) via Ticketmaster and the Bridgestone Arena box office.
