Merle Haggard Forced to Cancel More Shows


Country music legend, Merle Haggard, has been battling pneumonia since early December. At the close of 2015, Haggard was forced to postpone shows to regain his health and attempted to make a comeback in the earlier months of 2016.

On March 2, news broke that Haggard canceled the month’s concert dates and checked into the hospital with double pneumonia. Now, Haggard is having to continue the cancellations by clearing his April calendar (which included Willie Nelson at all stops), as well.

Haggard made a statement to his fans through his publicist:

I want to thank my fans for their prayers and well wishes. I hope to be back on the road in May, but I’m taking it one day at a time.

Our continued thoughts and prayers are with Merle Haggard as he travels the road to recovery.

Ty Herndon, Andy Griggs, & Jamie O’Neal announce 2015 tour

Well dang. I was hoping after Ty Herndon made his brave announcement on Thursday that he’s gay, he’d disappear and then come back in a year or so with the most amazing country album ever recorded (hey, it could happen) and he’d officially become the first openly gay country mega-star. Turns out he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
