Last Tuesday, legendary singer Merle Haggard was hospitalized in a Georgia hospital with double pneumonia. The 74-year-old was treated and released last Friday and tried a ride on his tour bus to his California home, but this site reports he returned to that Macon, Georgia hospital for more treatment. Plus, from last week's stay doctors discovered he had stomach ulcers, polyps in his colon and diverticulitis in his esophagus! All that on top of the pneumonia! When he checked in last Tuesday he canceled his January concerts, and this re-hospitalization situation might affect dates in February. However, his next concert is late February, the 28th in Arizona. Merle Haggard is set apart from the rest, with a style all his own! I'm praying for his recovery. Here's one of my favorite songs from "the Hag".
