When you’re a son of Merle, it just comes natural to be a fine singer as well. Curiously, the best clips I could find of the two singing Haggard boys are both performances of songs more commonly associated with George Strait.
Marty Haggard does “Trains Make Me Lonesome,” which appeared on Strait’s 1992 album Holding My Own. Written by Thom Schuyler and Paul Overstreet.
Noel Haggard does “Tell Me Something Bad About Tulsa,” probably best known as a 2003 Strait single but originally a Merle Haggard album cut in 1986. Noel released it as a single in 1997. Written by Red Lane.
