Merle Haggard is moved by the love from his incredible fans.

Late last year he was forced to cancel a few tour dates because of a bout with double pneumonia. The 78-year-old outlaw country idol told Rolling Stone that he was "lucky to be alive".

 On February 2nd, Haggard announced his excitement to be back on the road.

Unfortunately when they arrived at the Riverside, CA venue, Haggard wasn't feeling strong enough to get on stage. Fans were extremely understanding of his unfortunate news and encouraged the singer to rest. 

Thank you to the fans who came out tonight in riverside! Sadly I'm just not strong enough yet. This man was praying behind my bus and made me realize how much you all care. Thank you so much.

Haggard's son, and lead guitarist, Ben also shared the picture of the man praying above. The fan was kneeling behind the tour bus, praying for the Haggard's health. As Ben explains in his post, the picture of the man brought his father to tears.  


The caption reads: "Told dad there was a guy praying behind the bus, he looked down and weeped.. Moved by the love from the fans!"

We wish Merle a speedy recovery, and hope he is feeling good enough to get on stage in no time! Watch his last Grand Ole Opry performance of "I Think I'll Just Stay Here And Drink" below.
