Ben Haggard is the son of iconic Country Music Legend, Merle Haggard. Since Merles death, Ben hasnt missed a beat, passing on the legacy of his dads music with brother Noel and the Strangers. Ben recalls Merle telling him, Youd be an idiot not to take my guitar and my bus, not to sing my songs for as long as you can_ Go out there and play until theres nobody to play to. For anyone whos heard young Haggard play guitar with his father, that talent is undeniable, but hes only recently discovered a singing voice that, while borrowing genetically from dads well-worn gravitas, adds its own fresh take on songs like Sing Me Back Home (a performance of which is featured on Bens Facebook page), Heaven Was a Drink Of Wine, Workin Man Blues and What Am I Gonna Do With the Rest of My Life. Ben continues his fathers legacy, playing his songs and pleasing Merles many fans, doing his part as the good son. When Im compared to him, I realize its to someone far greater, but it gives me hope and the drive to emerge from his shadow, and hopefully, one day, to stand just as tall, Ben says humbly. Merle shot for the moon, and theres no reason I cant aim for it, too. For Ben Haggard, this is just the beginning of his artistic journey, and he still has plenty of places to go, but he looks well-prepared to kick out the footlights in his own right..
