Merle Haggard hospitalized

Country star Merle Haggard has been hospitalized for the second time in a week.

Country star Merle Haggard is being treated for pneumonia in a Macon, Ga., hospital and has been forced to cancel the rest of his January concerts, his rep has announced.

Tresa Redburn says she had a phone chat with the 74-year-old singer Wednesday night in his hospital room. She says Haggard was admitted to hospital Tuesday after canceling a Macon show.

Haggard, who released his latest album, Working In Tennessee, in October, was briefly hospitalized this weekend in Texas after canceling a Fort Worth show  Saturday night. His rep did not disclose his illness at the time.
