FORT WORTH, TX (AP) — A spokeswoman says country star Merle Haggard has left a North Texas hospital after not feeling well and canceling a show.
Tresa Redburn said Monday that the 74-year-old entertainer is being driven, on his tour bus, to his home in the Redding, Calif., area. She says Haggard will be checked by his own doctors.
Redburn told The Associated Press that Haggard on Saturday went to a Fort Worth hospital for some tests, then left early Sunday. She declined to provide details on his medical condition. Haggard canceled his appearance Saturday night at Billy Bob's Texas.
He had surgery for lung cancer in 2008.
Haggard last December won Kennedy Center Honors
