In the years since Merle Haggard’s 2016 death, a group of Inland Northwest musicians has gathered to celebrate the life and legacy of the country music legend, bringing together like-minded music lovers for a honky-tonk singalong. This tribute event has been dubbed Hagfest Northwest, and it’s back again this weekend. Hosted by local musician Rusty Jackson, the concert features the likes of Steve Starkey, Chrissy Summering, Joey Anderson and more, and you’ll have two chances to check it out — at 3 pm and 7 pm. (Keep in mind that alcoholic beverages will only be served during the evening performance.) You’ll no doubt hear many of Haggard’s 38 country chart toppers, including “Mama Tried,” “Okie from Muskogee” and “Pancho & Lefty,” and will most certainly leave humming them all.
Sat, April 10 at 3 and 7 pm • $19.50-$29.50 • Lake City Center • 1916 N. Lakewood, Coeur d’Alene • hagfest.org
