Remembering Merle


We are deeply sadden by the passing of Merle Haggard. We were excited, and honored, to have Merle scheduled to join us for the first G Fest. We’re sure we’ll hear “Okie From Muskogee” sometime during the festival, as well as many other celebrations of the Hag’s life and music throughout. We’re making plans as we speak and will be announcing Saturday’s entertainment soon.

It’s without question how big of an influence Merle had on country music and beyond. We collected some of the tweets and Facebook posts that went out yesterday from our friends joining us for G Fest 2016. We’re all going to miss you, Merle!

"Sing it sweet and sing it low, and then I'll have to go, Sing a sad song, and sing it for me" – Merle thank you for…

My uncle painted this portrait of Merle haggard. I got it signed by the legend himself. It’s a prized possession
