On Monday, November 10, outlaw country icon Merle Haggard will return to San Antonio to perform at the Majestic Theatre. At 77-years-old, Haggard's telecaster twang is as biting as his first days on the country scene. As a touring musician, Haggard is maturing like an oak-aged whisky, his tours as powerful as they are frequent. For a more just description of the Hag, check out our feature on the Kennedy Center Honoree from his visit to the Whitewater Amphitheater back in March. Written by SA Americana enthusiast D.T. Buffkin, it's an artist's take on a defining icon in the genre.
