Rodney Crowell, Buddy Miller, Aaron Lewis and Tanya Tucker have also joined the all-star artists roster for Sing Me Back Home: The Music of Merle Haggard, which is set for April 6 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

They join a massive all-star lineup that already includes Sheryl Crow and Rolling Stones guitarist Keith RichardsWillie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, John Mellencamp, Dierks Bentley, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams Jr., Toby Keith, the Avett Brothers, Alison Krauss, Ronnie Dunn, Alabama, Billy Gibbons, Warren Haynes, Jamey Johnson, Kacey Musgraves, Lucinda Williams, Lynyrd Skynyrd, John Anderson, Bobby Bare, Connie Smith and Ben Haggard.

Nelson and Haggard were longtime friends and collaborators, and Nelson is not only performing at the event, he’s also co-hosting it with Haggard’s family.

“I am so very thankful for this tribute to my husband, Merle Haggard. Please come join me and my family at this fantastic show that Merle would be so proud of,” Theresa Haggard says in a press release.

Owen was one of many country stars who turned to social media to pay tribute to Haggard after his death in 2016. Two days after the legend’s death, Owen played an impromptu medley of Haggard classic for fans during a 25-minute Facebook Live performance.
