Following Merle Haggard‘s hospitalization for a recurring case of double pneumonia, his youngest son, Ben, is asking fans to send in their prayers. 

Merle has been experiencing health issues since December of last year, when he was forced to postpone some of his tour dates so he could take time to recover. Since then Merle has tried multiple times to return to his tour, and has performed a few shows.

But just as it would start to seem that Merle was feeling better, he’d suddenly cancel more concerts due to his illness. Now, Merle’s doctors are advising him to take a break for performing for a month, so he can relax and hopefully make a full recovery.

Shortly after the news broke about Merle’s most recent hospital stay, Ben took to Facebook to ask people to send in their prayers for his father.

Ben’s request received an overwhelming amount of support, with hundreds of fans sharing their “get well” wishes for Merle. 

We’ll definitely sending our prayers for Merle’s recovery. Get well soon Merle!
