FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
BREMEN, Ga. (Dec. 11, 2017) – Mill Town Music Hall is proud to announce that Country musicians Ben Haggard and the Strangers will perform on Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018 at 7:30pm EST. Ben, the youngest son of Country Music Icon Merle Haggard, was lead guitarist in his father’s band and just recently discovered his distinct voice that puts a unique spin on any song he sings. Ray Scott, who has released five albums to date, will open the show. Mill Town Music Hall, focusing on family-friendly music and events, is located conveniently off I-20 in Bremen (1031 Alabama Avenue).
Ben has played in his father's band since the age of 15. Upon Merle's passing in April 2016, Ben has continued his father’s legacy by taking over as leader of the Strangers. His unique voice gained him wild popularity when he began posting video covers of songs on YouTube a few years ago. There was a time when Ben recalls his father telling him, “You’d be an idiot not take my guitar and my bus, not to sing my songs for as long as you can… go out there and play until there’s nobody to play to.”

Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets through Ticket Alternative at 1-877-725-8849, online at the Mill Town Music Hall website (www.MillTownMusicHall.com) or at the Mill Town Music Hall box office.
