Born in December of 1968 the son of Legend Merle Haggard, Scotts life as well as his career are tightly woven into the fabric of country music history and lore. He is both a legacy and a legend with an unmistakable voice and a captivating style. Scott Haggard is one of the greatest voices in country music with a haunting resemblance to his father, the ultimate stylist, Merle Haggard. Both share that raw, forlorn quality that is essential to the interpretation of traditional country themes, conveying the deepest emotion of every lyric. As a teenager, Scott had a very deep interest in music, always playing his guitar and singing. As he grew up, he learned several other instruments including drums, saxophone, and along with his guitar, continued to develop his craft. After he graduated, Scott found himself struggling to make ends meet in a poor economy, like so many others. So, he set music aside and began a career as a professional truck driver. He worked hard raising his family. In 2006, Scott decided to return to his music and has been working on that part of his life ever since. Listening to his Dad’s music gave him inspiration to write his own songs.
In May of 2008, he won the Horizon Award from the Mobile Alabama Country Music Association, which states, “Presented to Scott Haggard in recognition of your outstanding talent and continued hard work promoting country music”. This vote of confidence earned Scott some important show dates and guest appearances.
