Must See: Scotty McCreery’s Amazing Tribute To Merle Haggard

Artists including Scotty McCreery are still paying tribute to the late Merle Haggard less than 2 weeks after his death.

McCreery performed with his band at the iconic Grand Ole Opry, and surprised the crowd with a cover of the classic Haggard song “Mama Tried”.

Guitar in hand, McCreery’s deep vocals & energy successfully impressed during the signature Haggard song.

Standing in the famed Opry circle, McCreery ended his performance by paying respect to the country legend. “God bless Mr. Merle Haggard, y’all,” he remarked. “Thank you so much Grand Ole Opry. Y’all have a great night. We love you.”

McCreery took to Twitter & Instagram to reflect on his tribute to Haggard.

Was an honor to pay tribute to one of the greatest artists country music will ever know, on the greatest stage in country music.
