Merle haggardWe are sending our best wishes out to Merle Haggard, and hope he recovers quickly.  The following post was placed on Merle’s Facebook page yesterday:

“Due to pneumonia, MERLE HAGGARD has checked into a CA hospital, forcing him to postpone his next few tour dates. Those shows include last night in Palm Desert, tonight in Riverside. Friday in Oakland and Saturday in Wendover. However, he hopes to be well enough to play his dates in Las Vegas, NV, Beverly Hills and Lemore, CA next week.  Stay tuned…”

Merle will be rescheduling this week’s shows, and has already set February 9 for the show in Palm Desert.

After the Faceboook post on Merle’s page, his son shared it on his profile page as well. He simply shared the post, but did not add any additional comments.  Ben is the lead guitarist in his Dad’s band.
