Merle Haggard has been hospitalized in Macon, Ga. for pneumonia. The country legend has been sick since leaving his home in California last week, and became more ill after arriving in Macon for last night’s concert. That date was cancelled, as were the remainder of his January shows. Frank Mull is Haggard’s tour manager.
Haggard, 74, has dates booked through August, including an April 11 show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
He released a new album in October 2011. Working In Tennessee is his second disc for Vanguard Records.
