The Associated Press (via The Washington Post) reports Merle Haggard is being treated for pneumonia in a Macon, Georgia hospital and has had to cancel the rest of his January concert dates.

Merle’s publicist, Tresa Redburn, told the AP she spoke to Merle by phone today in his Macon hospital room.

Merle, 74, was taken to the hospital on Tuesday after having to cancel a Macon show. He was supposed to perform at least four more shows this month. Tour manager Frank Mull told The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer that Merle has been sick since leaving his home in northern California last week.
