Chris Stapleton Pays Tribute to Merle Haggard With 'Silver Wings'

Advertisements

The passing of Merle Haggard earlier this year has deeply affected artists of all musical genres.  However, the country music world has been especially rocked by the loss of this role model and friend to many country artists.

Although Haggard’s songs have long been standards for performers to cover, many of his now-famous fans are taking extra care to keep his memory and music alive.  Chris Stapleton’s rendition of “Silver Wings” is especially touching. 

Although backed by only Stapleton’s usual simple, organic band, Chris and Morgane Stapleton’s two voices cast a harmonious magical spell over the crowd, who can’t help but sing along with the performers on stage.

The lyrics of “Silver Wings” also perfectly sum up the emotions that are left behind when we lose someone that we love; it’s such a fitting tribute to a beloved musical icon.

Thanks to performances like this, Merle Haggard’s legacy will remain with us, giving beautiful memories to country music fans for generations to come.
