“When you feel like you’re believed in, it’s amazing what you can do. It’s really affirming to work with a label that just wants to see you thrive and make great records. 30 years into this and we’re as excited to be in the studio making a new album as when we first started. It’s a fortunate position to be in.” – Tim Bluhm.

Tim Bluhm Releases Merle Haggard Tribute Record ‘Hag Heaven’ Out Now

2020-11-20T22:19:45+00:00October 6th, 2020|

Tim Bluhm has released Hag Heaven,  a seamlessly performed 11-track tribute to Outlaw Country legend, Merle Haggard. Bluhm co-produced the album with Mark Adams and rallied session players: Dave Zirbel, Megan Lynch Chowning, Aidan Collins, and Daryl VanDruff.

Recorded at Tim Bluhm’s home studio with a dizzying array of vintage instruments, world-class microphones, and collectible gear, Hag Heaven is a carefully crafted and seamlessly performed collection of 11 of Merle Haggard’s greatest compositions.

“I was probably about 22 when I first really heard Merle Haggard sing. I had already been in a rock band for about 3 years. I was so attracted to his lyrics and the way he delivered them. He sang with such effortlessness and honesty, and he was good at humor too.”

Hag Heaven is available digitally as well as on limited edition vinyl.
