Welcome to the offical site of BIG CITY: The Ultimate Tribute to Merle Haggard
Big City is The Ultimate Tribute to The Legendary Merle Haggard and The Strangers. The show will take you on a journey through the span of The Hags career from his earliest hits to his final recordings with Willie Nelson.
Big City will entertain you and your audience with the variety of music that Merle held so near to his heart, traveling through the history of Hag's best twin fiddle Texas Swing to the music of Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys. You'll hear many of his Duets with Bonnie Owens, the great collaborations with his outlaw partners Willie Nelson and Johnny Paycheck and their stories of the working class. You'll also hear his gospel favored hits and Merle's tipping of his Fedora Hat to the singing brakeman, Jimmie Rodgers and the great Lefty Frizzel. And to complete this package, Big City takes you right to Bakersfield with The Instrumental Sounds of The Strangers.
