Merle Haggard’s eldest son, Marty, performs on Thursday, Nov. 9, in Port Charlotte, for the last time in Florida until 2019.

Marty was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. Of course, everyone knows his dad, Merle Haggard. Marty considers his dad the greatest singer/songwriter ever and a lot of people agree with that. Growing up, Marty was able to travel with his dad and had the opportunity to know many of the country greats like Bob Wills, Lefty Frizzell and Johnny Cash, just to name a few. He also had the privilege to be a guest at the White House and met President Nixon and President Reagan.
