Merle Haggard is a 78 year-old country music legend who is still touring despite his advanced age. Unfortunately, his latest tour came to an abrupt end this week when he was rushed to the hospital to receive treatment for pneumonia.
According to Q Political, Haggard’s hospitalization will cause him to miss a few concerts this week, but he is hopeful that he will be able to resume his tour next week. The shows he is missing will be rescheduled for 2016.
At the age of 78, any illness is serious. We’ll be praying for Merle, and hopefully he can get back to the road quickly!
