George Strait did a tribute to the late legendary Merle Haggard at his triumphant return to the stage in Las Vegas Friday night and it was amazing.  Strait did a medley of songs in the newly opened T-Mobile Arena that included 'Mama Tried' and 'The Fightin' Side Of Me'.

This clip features 'Mama Tried'.  Strait is performing in the round with video screens above the stage.  Listen to the crowd when video of George Strait is replaced with actual video of Merle Haggard.
