Toby Keith pays tribute to Merle Haggard At Grand Ole Opry show of May 20th, 2016.
Keith’s set included Haggard’s biggest hits such as Silver Wings, Mama Tried, Today I Started Loving You Again.
Toby had a special relationship with Haggard, as during one of his last shows, he wasn’t in good health.
Since Merle couldn’t finish the show, he asked Toby to take if he knew his songs, and therefore finished the show.
What better way to spend an Opry performance than to make tribute to one of the greatest in Country Music.
