A special evening dedicated to one of the greatest artists in country music history - Merle Haggard. In “The Story of the Hag”, JUNO-nominated singer Jess Lee will take you on a journey through Haggard’s incredible life and times through stories and songs. With an incredible career spanning six decades, the heartbroken and the hard-living Haggard wrote songs for the working class to drink to, dance to, and cry to. He notched 40 No. 1 hits including ”Working Man Blues”, “Mama Tried”, “Silver Wings” and one of the most famous country songs of all time, “Okie From Muskogee”. The show also includes the stories from Haggard’s life that echo the songs he sang; he was born poor, raised in a converted railway boxcar and turned 21 in prison before turning his life around to become a country music hero. “The Story of The Hag “ is a must-see for Haggard fans and music fans alike.
