More About

Seventy-five-year-old country legend Merle Haggard is still making country and rock crowds giddy with cuts like "The Fightin' Side of Me" and "Mama Tried," when most men his age can barely open a car door. He released an album, Working In Tennessee, last October and shows no signs of slowing down the touring grind, even if lung cancer tried to stop him in his tracks a few years back. Hell, he even joined Twitter a few months ago, to the delight of everyone with or without a red neck. Who would have ever imagined the "Okie From Muskogee" rubbing virtual shoulders with the scum on that social-media site? If we have one complaint, it's that Haggard doesn't tweet nearly enough. Young local openers Folk Family Revival aren't too shabby themselves, melding Dylan-style stomp with Red Dirt twang. They've become old hands at opening for legends and a force to be reckoned with. And partied with, if you can hang.
