Presses Accelerator on “Tim Dugger and Friends Tour” Hitting Speedways Nationwide Through October

Nashville, Tenn. (April 5, 2024) — Curb Records recording artist Tim Dugger honors his musical hero, Merle Haggard, with an original cover of Haggard’s self-penned classic “Mama Tried,” out today (4/5) — listen HERE.

“Mama Tried” jumpstarts a season of new music for the country traditionalist. On his fresh recording, produced by Brandon Hood, Dugger carefully keeps the memorable rebellion of the Haggard staple alive and well with his take on the tried-and-true country outlaw track. The sympathetic tribute to his mother became a career-defining song for Haggard and his band, The Strangers, spending four weeks at No. 1 in the late ’60s. Paying homage to the legend, Dugger caps the definitive hit with a full-on electric jam session that kicks the song’s southern rock up to 11.

Poised to headline the 2024 NASCAR racing circuit again this year, the Alabama native is pressing the accelerator on his “Tim Dugger and Friends Tour” slated to hit major speedways nationwide through October. Supporting his 2024 concert dates in North Carolina are partnerships with Dr. Pepper and Sun Drop that will find Dugger featured in an augmented reality experience throughout Walmart in-store displays and ahead of the NASCAR All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway and the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Preliminary routing for the “Tim Dugger and Friends Tour” is below with additional dates to come.

Dugger will preview tracks from his next studio record, due later this year, at his upcoming live shows. More drops at DSPs are expected from the singer/songwriter in the coming months.
