Country music legend Merle Haggard says he’s nearly over the case of double pneumonia that has kept him in a Georgia hospital for most of the past week. Actually, he left the hospital, got back on his tour bus heading home, and then decided....not such a good idea. He thanked all the fans, and especially the people of Macon, Georgia, for being so gracious and welcoming during his illness....a gentleman ALWAYS.

Get well soon, Hag, from all of us here at 97.3 the DAWG!
