Wishes for a swift recovery go out to Haggard, as he has a busy weekend planned. He is slated to take part in two George Strait concerts, one Friday night (April 4) at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kan., and then on Saturday (April 5) at Pepsi Center in Denver (both dates also feature Lee Ann Womack).

On Sunday April 6, Haggard will be honored at the 49th annual ACM awards by Miranda Lambert and Strait, and will be presented the Crystal Milestone Award by Garth Brooks.
