Merle Haggard has been recovering from Pneumonia for some time now. He was first diagnosed back in December, and then had to cancel some shows again in January and February.
The country music icon was set to perform at the Ryman Auditorium on March 8th and 9th but unfortunately his doctors have requested he take a little more time off. His lungs are still feeling tired and need proper rest in order to fully heal.
His son Ben has been on Twitter keeping the fans alert to what’s happening with his father. He recently posted the following tweet asking for prayers from the fans.
