The legend of Merle Haggard at the Burford

Ben and Noel Haggard


Not long before Merle Haggard died in 2016, he told his youngest son Ben, “You’d be an idiot not to 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.”

That’s just what Ben along with his brother Noel Haggard will be doing when they come Sept. 27 to The Burford Theatre in Arkansas City.

Tickets go on sale July 1 at The Burford, floor seats and balcony seats are available.

Also performing will be former saddle bronc rider and rising country artist Ross Cooper.
