He signed with Dimension Records in 1979 and released one single, “Charleston Cotton Mill”, which spent three weeks on the Hot Country Songs charts in 1981. At his father’s request, Haggard joined his road band, in which he sang harmony and played rhythm guitar.

He decided to begin a solo career again in 1985. He then signed with MTM Records, for which he released four singles under the production of Billy Strange.

The most successful of these was “Trains Make Me Lonesome”, which peaked at number 57 on the country charts, and which helped him receive a nomination for Top New Male Vocalist from the Academy of Country Music.

After the MTM singles, Haggard was seriously injured in a car accident, suffering a head injury and memory loss which required four years of recovery.

Meet Merle Haggard’s Four Musically Talented Sons

Merle Haggard, the man who sang hits such as “Mama Tried,” “Today I Started Loving You Again” and “Okie From Muskogee” had a total of six children across his five marriages — Ben, Noel, Marty, Jenessa, Kelli, and Dana. Out of the six, there are four gifted country singers out there who inherited their natural talent.

The Strangers singer raised his children in California, where he created the legendary Bakersfield sound. The country star’s children have developed their own following over the years and are entertaining just like their father was.

Longtime fans already know about Marty and Noel, two sons from the Hag’s marriage to first wife Leona Hobbs (1956-1964). Lately, the attention received by their young half-brother Ben from the country star’s marriage with fifth wife Theresa Ann Lane (he had no children with his other wives Bonnie Owens, Leona Williams, and Debbie Parret) has kept the family business on fans’ minds beyond Merle’s April 6, 2016, passing on his 79th birthday. All three still play their dad’s country music songs, as does a lesser-known sibling named Scott.
