You can now listen to Merle Haggard while you drive on Merle Haggard.

In honor of the late, great Country Music Hall of Fame member, the Interstate 5/Highway 44 interchange in Redding, Calif., has been designated the Merle Haggard Memorial Overpass.

After Sen. Ted Gaines helped pass the new legislation, Redding radio personalities on the Billy and Patrick Mornings show spearhead the effort to raise $2,500 needed to purchase two overpass signs by selling t-shirts.

Merle, who lived in Palo Cedro, Calif., (approximately 10 miles east of Redding) died in April 2016 at age 79.

The official dedication ceremony for the Merle Haggard Memorial Overpass will be held on October 25.

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett is ready to hit the road and Bring The Bar To You in 2022!

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
