Country music legend Merle Haggard has returned home to northern California to recuperate from multiple illnesses.
Haggard had been hospitalized in Macon, Ga., for about a week with double pneumonia. While there, doctors discovered three stomach ulcers and eight polyps in his colon.
The “Okie from Muskogee” singer, 74, earlier tried to check himself out of the hospital to return to Redding, Calif., by tour bus. But he returned a few hours later. MORE HERE
