Lee Hall, Bettersworth Auditorium

Mississippi State's Lyceum Series will welcome patrons home to the newly renovated historic Lee Hall by kicking off the 2014-15 season with a performance by legendary country artist Merle Haggard.

While hardcore country, the Bakersfield, California, native has pushed the boundaries of music. Like his idol Bob Wills, his music was a melting pot that drew from all forms of traditional American music -- country, jazz, blues, and folk -- and in the process, developed a distinctive style of his own. As a performer, singer, and musician, he influenced countless other artists.
