The Malpass Brothers with Merle Haggard
The Malpass Brothers are pictured backstage with Merle Haggard at the Belk Theater, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte, NC.
It was something of a reunion when the brothers opened for the legend on June 30th, 2015. The brothers toured with Merle and worked with Hag Records for 6 years before signing with a new record label in 2014. Chris and Taylor Malpass recently released their self-titled album on Organic Records.
“Well, they remind me a lot of myself and people that I knew when I was young. They have their hearts into what we call ‘traditional’ country music. It’s valuable to me that we cultivate the young talent for that kind of music,” Haggard says.
