Merle Haggard left his legacy in three sets of talented hands after he passed away in April. His three sons, Marty, Noel, and Ben are all country singers like their father, and have been paying tribute to him since his death by playing his many hit songs. 

All three of Merle's sons came together on Country's Family Reunion to honor their father on a special that was dedicated to him. The sons took turns singing Merle's most notable songs, with Noel and Ben doing double duty on a mashup of two of his classics.

Singing Merle's 1978 hit "Running Kind" and the 1966 chart-topper "The Fugitive," Noel and Ben brought their father's music back to life through their powerful performance. Noel started off singing first, taking the lead on "Running Kind" while Ben showed off his guitar skills during an instrumental break in the music.

After receiving a warm round of applause, Ben jumped in to show off his vocal talents. Both sons sound slightly like their father, with raw, classic-country sounding voices. 

The small audience in the room loved the whole performance, as made clear from their reaction. A clip that we found of the performance also shows Noel taking a seat so that Ben could sing solo on "It's All in the Movies." You can enjoy the full clip below.

There's no denying the fact that Merle's sons got his musical genes. They did a wonderful job with their tribute, and we're sure he would feel the same.
