BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Country legend, Merle Haggard, is celebrating another year as he turns 77 years old, and in honor of his special day the community is holding several events, Sunday at the Bakersfield Harley Davidson.
The big celebration kicks-off at 1 p.m. at the Davidson on Merle Haggard Drive and continues on with a jubilant birthday bash of cake, ice cream and country music at the Kern County Museum's Pioneer Village.
It's all free, but organizers are hoping to receive donations for a very important project - moving Haggard's childhood home to the Kern County Museum.
