Marty Haggard | "CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock"
MartyHaggard
Marty was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. Of course, everyone knows his Dad, Merle Haggard, who Marty considers “the best country singer/songwriter ever”. Marty was privileged to be a part of his Dad’s career and having the opportunity to meet many of the country greats as well as other celebrities and dignitaries.
In 1979, Marty began touring with his own band, then in 1981 signed with Dimension Records. From 1983 to 1985 he traveled with his Dad, singing harmony and playing guitar. In 1986, he signed with MTM Records and released Trains Make Me Lonesome, a song which garnered him a nomination as best new male vocalist. In 1995, Marty signed with Critique/BMG.
In 1999, Marty and his wife, Tessa, formed Marty Haggard Music and Marty began writing and singing spiritual songs. In 2001, Marty and Tessa were blessed with a son, Jamey Cole Haggard. For 10 years Marty traveled the country playing at churches and other venues proclaiming his love for Jesus.
Marty’s love for his Dad’s music inspired him to begin a project titled A Tribute To Merle Haggard “My Dad”. In 2010, he cut the first album in his tribute consisting of 15 Hag classics. In 2010/2011 he performed at the Oak Ridge Boys Theatre and Clay Cooper Theatre in Branson, Missouri. Marty is currently performing at The Paramount Theatre in Casa Grande, Arizona. Marty has recorded a second Tribute album and is planning many more in the future. As Marty’s song “Apple” states “An Apple never falls too far from it’s tree”.
