Paso Robles teen opens for Merle Haggard
January 2, 2015
A fifteen-year-old Paso Robles girl opened last month for the legendary Merle Haggard at the Canyon Club outside Los Angeles.
Amaya Rose is a singer, songwriter and fiddle player. She has been playing fiddle on the Central Coast with Monte Mills and the Lucky Horseshoe Band since she was 12.
After she opened the show and left the stage, Haggard brought her back to play with his band.
When Haggard was 16-years-old, music icon Lefty Frizzell brought Haggard on a Bakersfield stage to play with his band. Haggard has now returned the favor.
