Country legend Merle Haggard has been forced to cancel his shows this weekend, as he recovers from pneumonia, according to his son Ben‘s Twitter account.

1994 CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Pam Tillis is asking fans to remember her legendary father, Country Music Hall of Famer Mel Tillis, after his recent colon surgery. “Dad is not healing as quickly as we would like…we ask for your continued prayers and we’ll update everyone soon….he’s a trooper,” she shared on her Facebook page.

New artist Kane Brown has just signed a record deal with RCA Nashville. He’s set to hit the road with Florida Georgia Line later this year on their Dig Your Roots tour.
