Marty was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. Of course everyone knows his Dad, Merle Haggard. Marty considers his Dad the greatest singer/songwriter ever. Growing up, Marty traveled with Merle, getting to know many of the country greats like Bob Wills, Lefty Frizzell and Johnny Cash to name a few. Influenced by his father and many other country music legends, he began touring and performing in 1979. In 1981, he signed with Dimension Records, touring with his father’s band from 1983-1985, playing guitar and singing harmony.
Marty signed with MTM Records in 1986 and released “Trains Make Me Lonesome”, which garnered him a nomination as best new male vocalist. Marty signed with Critique/BMG in 1995 and, after some time, decided to leave the Nashville lifestyle behind. In 1999, Marty and his wife, Tessa, formed Marty Haggard Music where Marty began writing and singing spiritual songs, traveling and performing for the next decade. Marty’s love for his Dad and his music eventually inspired him to begin a new project which he titled, “A Tribute to Merle Haggard ‘My Dad’”.
