Scotty McCreery recently played the Grand Ole Opry and featured the song “Mama Tried.” In the wake of many classic Merle Haggard tributes coming out, McCreery pulls off this perfect performance to be apart of honoring the man who influenced so many. There’s not many better places to do this than the Grand Ole Opry.
Merle’s last performance at the Opry was only a year ago in 2015 which you can see here. It is amazing to see the Country Music genre come together like this, whether it’s a traditional, outlaw, or contemporary country artist. They all have had some grateful input or songs devoted to the life Merle lived, and are grateful for all the years of inspiration he gave to the world.
