Not haggered anymore: Merle Haggard is hitting the road after a brief illness.
Country music legend Merle Haggard is gearing up for the road again after a brief illness that had him sidelined for several shows.
The dates that were postponed in January are now rescheduled for April, and Haggard’s previously booked tour with his longtime band, The Strangers, will begin as planned on February 28 in Tucson, Arizona, at the Fox Theatre.
“I’m feeling good and ready to get back on the bus," Haggard said in a press release. "Thanks to all for their powerful prayers that led to my speedy recovery. I’m rehearsing with the band and looking forward to playin’ and singin’ again.”
