Pay Tribute to Merle Haggard this 4/20

Posted By on Tue, Apr 12, 2016 at 9:00 AM

Celebrate 4/20 the right way—rockin' and rollin' to the rough country tunes of the late Merle Haggard. 

Haggard, who pioneered the signature bluegrass, California-country Bakersfield sound, passed away last Wednesday, April 6, due to pnuemonia-related complications at 79 years old, according to CNN. To say a final goodbye on Tucson's behalf, local musician Hank Topless and his band will play a "foot-stompin', hootenanny" of a tribute to Merle at Club Congress.
