(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — On November 12, Merle Haggard and his band, The Strangers (Kevin Williams, Biff Adam, Scott Joss, Norm Hamlett, and Doug Colosio), will perform the first, of what he hopes is many, webcasts from his front room at his home in northern California. The webcast will be an hour long, containing live music–new and old–plus talking with guest Kenny Vernon.
"I'm paddlin' in unknown waters here," says Haggard. "Trying to present a whole new idea for myself. This was totally my idea, so whatever happens–blame me. All my life I've been a radio fan, listening to live shows when I was a kid and it's always been my dream to have a show of my own. The live stuff will contain live versions of a couple of songs from my new album." Chicago Wind has just been released by Capitol/Nashville.
The webcast from Merle's home is at 3pm (PT)/6pm (ET). Just log on at merlehaggard.com. The fee is $15.00. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
