Merle Haggard Suspends Tour Dates While Recovering From Pneumonia

Advertisements

Get well soon, Mr. Haggard!

One of the original “real men” of country music, Mr. Merle Haggard has had to postpone several of his most recent tour dates after becoming ill while on the road.

The 78 year old hardcore and real talkin’ master of melody and storytelling has been on the road, thrilling old fans and making new fans along the way. This past week, Merle was admitted into a California hospital after being diagnosed with pneumonia.

While such an illness would have other musicians canceling the tour entirely, especially a musician in his golden years, it is safe to say that Merle is not your average musician. According to his Facebook page, Merle has every intention of recovering from his illness and getting back on the road as soon as possible.

According to his son and lead guitarist Ben Haggard, Merle plans on being back at the grind in a few weeks and will continue to support his most recent album release with Willie Nelson titled Django and Jimmie.

Feel better soon, Merle!
