When Merle Haggard passed away on his 79th birthday, he still had a handful of shows lined up.

Instead of cancel them, his sons Ben and Noel, decided to step up and finish their father's tour with the help of longtime Haggard friend Kris Kristofferson.

They were backed by Merle's longtime band The Strangers, which Ben was a member of for a long time leading up to Merle's death.

Noel, Ben and Kris played all of Merle's well-known hits during each show and when you watch them perform together, you can feel Merle smiling down on them.

He was always so proud of his children and we know he'd be so proud of them today.

In this particular video, the talented trio perform Merle's 1970 hit "The Fightin' Side Of Me" to the adoring Atlanta, Georgia audience.

We're so glad Merle passed his passion for music down to his children and because of that, we get to enjoy Merle's legacy for years to come!

Enjoy their performance of "The Fightin' Side Of Me" below.
