Haggard returns to hospital for more treatment
Country star Merle Haggard returns to hospital for more treatment after early checkout
By The Associated Press

MACON, Ga. (AP) ' Country music legend Merle Haggard is back in a Macon, Ga., hospital for more treatment.

The 74-year-old checked himself out Friday to make the drive home to Redding, Calif., on his tour bus, but returned a few hours later. Spokeswoman Tressa Redburn says Haggard quickly realized he wasn't up to the trip after checking himself out of the hospital too early.

Haggard is now undergoing a more aggressive antibiotic treatment for pneumonia.



The "Okie from Muskogee" singer had part of a lung removed a few years ago while fighting cancer. He checked himself into the hospital last Tuesday after postponing a show in Macon. He has since postponed the rest of his January shows.

He released his latest album, "Working in Tennessee," last year.
