Country music legend Merle Haggard has died at the age of 79, according to the Associated Press.

The AP reported via Twitter that Haggard’s manager confirmed the rumors of the country star’s death.

Haggard had canceled shows recently due to ongoing health issues. He was hospitalized for pneumonia, once in December and a second time earlier in March.

Today (April 6) was Merle’s birthday.
