    I’m thinking of you Merle at this time and praying for your recovery. You’ve always been so good to me and I consider you my friend. Take care of yourself and get better.
    Your friend,

    My dad and mom, Bill and Barb Jones from Reno, Nevada, were close friends of Merle, Bonnie, Fuzzy, Biff and everyone else! I grew up listening and singing the Hag, but most of all, I remember my mom and dad’s friendship with Merle. So many memories I can’t recant them all…my favorite was in the Harrah’s Reno dressing room with my dad, mom and Merle and Willy before a show. I also remember going to Merle’s house in Bakersfield and Merle’s homemade chili! Good times, good times. Danny Jones

    Hello Merle I am sending a pray for your speedy recovery.
    When I was a little girl I saw you and Bonnie at a Rodeo in Texas. You let me come on the stage and sit with you I will never forget that. My parents love your music and I grew up loving it also. I wanted to thank you for giving a little girl a truly wonderful memory. Please get well soon. Your fan for life Marilyn

    Merle, just heard you cancelled your concert in Santa Rosa. I hope you get well soon. Wish I knew if you are cancelling all your concerts in California, I was driving down from Oregon. Get well

  • MELISSA MORRIS | Feb 5, 2016 at 4:39 am

    I was fortunate to hear Merle Haggard as well as Hank Williams, Sr. and George Jones, Waylon Jennings growing up. Daddy even got me collecting records and now I have inherited his. I pray for your health Hag. I feel blessed that I grew up in Kentucky fed a steady diet of the REAL country greats such as yourself. May the good LORD help you fight your illness and come back out to play. You are and will remain in my prayers. Sending much love and respect to you and your band and family as you go through another trial. God Bless you and I pray he heals you. in the Holy Name of JESUS! Amen!

    Greetings Merle,
    Been a fan for more than 40 years. Frankly, there is no one better, period! On September 5, 2015, it was great to see you at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Casino in Deadwood, South Dakota. I believe it was the 8th or 9th time I’ve seen your show, and as I said in an earlier fan comment, you never disappoint.

    I’m dropping a note today because I had heard that you was a bit under the weather. So, from my family of devoted fans, we are praying for your speedy recovery. Looking forward to seeing you again if you make it back up to South Dakota. As long as you keep pickin’ and as long as I’m able, I’ll never miss a show.

    By the way, please let Ben know that I believe he is a phenomenal lead guitar picker. When he’s pickin with Mr. Hamlet, I’m reminded of Mr. Roy Nichols. How proud you must be.

    Please get some rest, so you can continue to do what only you can do. You’re simply the greatest country singer/songwriter of all time, in my opinion and the opinion of millions of others.

    God Bless You & Yours

    Dear Mr. Haggard; I Live in Palm Desert, Ca and I recently found out you were playing the 1,100 seat McCallum Theater this coming Monday. I couldn’t believe it. I got one of the last tickets online…a good one too, in the Mezzanine. You see, I saw you at Anaheim Stadium when REAL COUNTRY was just crossing over. Might have been 1979 or so. It was Emmylou Harris, Alabama, yourself and Willie. I honestly didn’t know many of your songs. You had me at “Back to the Bar Room”. I cried several times though it was all non stop joy. To this day I’ve never seen anything like it and when you did Runnin’ Kind/Fugitive the 3rd tier in left field looked like it was going to collapse. I still have several songs from that show booked marked on YouTube. I wish you God speed in your recovery and look forward to seeing you again where ever you may be playing.

    All the best,
    JD

    Since I was a young person I have followed Merle and loved his music. I am writing to wish you well and thanks for all the memories and I have been to several of your concerts the Redding area over the years. Saw ya face to face in the market in Central Valley back in about l988. Stood a few paces behind you at the checkout and I just wanted to yell out–it is Merle but did not – afraid you might not like it. Saw ya drive away in a tan caddy I think it was. No cowboy hat but a military cap of some sort- maybe your fishing cap? Anywhooooo knew you lived in Palo Cedro and had a boat at Silverthorne. We have a restaurant up here in Spokane called the Swingining Doors and when that song of yours comes on my CD of you in my suv – that restaurant is just like that song!
    My folks had the sporting good store in downtown Kernville from 66- 76. You might have been there. Dad retired from Inglewood and bought the store and loved Kernville and we vacationed up there and I learn to drive in the South Fork at age 7. Vacationed there for years and eventually married a Forester and we lived in Kernville from 68-70. WE passed your home on l78 many many times over the years going up thru Lamont and up the Canyon! We would talk about you every time!
    The best to you Merle and there was a thingy on FB yesterday and asked what Band would you like to ride in the tour bus with and I said you so we could talk old times!
    So rest now and the best to you and your entire family and may God Bless You and know that me and many others loved your music! I fished Lake Shasta a lot when living in Redding for l5 years but never saw ya on the lake! Thanks again. Diane Aune

    Prayer and be Blessed. I have been a Hag fan for years. I ain’t much at sending emails. Matter of fact I have never sent a Fan Letter to anyone. Last night I went to a Church singing and heard a guy named Mike Upright. I thought it was you or Marty when I heard him on the radio. You may want to look at some of his music for an idea. I was impressed…and LOL that’s hard to do.
    I am glad I went to this web site. Its gives me a chance to offer a special prayer for you AND your family. I ran the roads for YEARS (30) as a Church Photographer. Church
    directories ect. I KNOW what it is like to work when you have a fever of 104 and you are the show. You have to make everybody smile. I have had to PRAY THUR just to make
    it an hour at a time.
    This IS NOT a public post. Thanks for your service and be blessed. By the way I have a few good shots of Marty in my file. He looks a lot like you.

    Hi, first of all I love Merle Haggard and his music. I have all my life. I was first exposed to his music when I was a child. My father Joseph “Joe”Caldwell use to tell my siblings and I that when he lived in Birmingham, Alabama, Merle Haggard used to come by his apartment and they’d hang out, idk, drink, play music, etc. Never knew if this story was true as my dad passed away in August 2006. Maybe someone in Merles staff can ask him, it would mean alot to me to know.

  • Kristi Velasquez | Jan 31, 2016 at 5:55 pm

    Merle wishing you a full recovery. We were saddened to here of your concert cancellation here on Farmington NM. We are part of the Villines Family from Newton County Arkansas. We were hoping to get to meet and talk with you. I have been a life long fan of yours. Our blessings go out to you and your family. Hope to see you someday. Kristi

  • Pat Trembley | Jan 31, 2016 at 2:24 pm

    Merle, I first saw you in concert in 1969 in Chicago, a show sponsored by the radio station, WMAQ. You were at the top. I just wished I could have talked to you then, but my big chance came in June of 1995 when you were in Deadwood, SD during Michael Martin Murphey’s Westfest. I was working for the radio station here in Buffalo, WY and was sent to Deadwood to cover the events. I was so excited that you were going to be there, since I have listened to your music since I was 10 years old. I loved you then and love you now. When I got to Deadwood and showed my media passes, I asked the director if there was any chance to get to interview you. She said she doubted it but would check. She came back about 30 minutes later and said “you have five minutes if you want to interview Merle.” It took me 10 seconds and I was ready. We were to have the interview on your bus. There was another fellow that had been picked, also, an Indian who worked for an Indian radio station. We boarded the bus and was sitting on the couch and you came out and we started to visit. Then this wonderful lady came out and took my hand and said “Hi, I’m Bonnie Owens. Would you like a cup of coffee.” I about fainted. I had loved Bonnie for as long as I could remember and to meet her was a moment I will never forget. She asked me for my address and phone number but I had to give it to your band member on stage so I don’t know if she ever got it or not. I think she really meant it when she said she would like to stop in Buffalo on her way home and visit. I was so sad when she didn’t come and sadder when I heard she has passed away. What a wonderful person! After coffee, you and I sat at the table and the interview started. What a dream come true for me. When I got ready to leave I had my picture taken with you. That afternoon someone stole the camera. I didn’t care about the camera but wanted the film. Anyway, you were kind enough to autograph a picture of you advertising Nocona Boots. I have seen you a couple of times since that day in Deadwood and tried to get backstage to see you again but no luck. I am so sorry to hear about your health problems. You mentioned cancer: I, too, have had it. Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Stage 3 T-cell. I am now in remission for the last four years and thank God for all that he has done for me. Merle, I know you get so many requests for interviews. I would like to see you again if you are ever in this part of the country. Just to say “hi” for old memories. God bless you for the chance you had to straighten out your life and become one of the best musicians and song writer I have ever heard and admire. You told me about how you wrote the song “Today I started loving you again.” What a wonderful tribute to Bonnie. Stay well, my friend. Pat Tremblely, Buffalo, WY.

    April 8, 2016 a chance of a life time to see Merle along with Willie Nelson in Springfield, Missouri. As soon as the tickets went on sale at 10 am a little over one week ago, we got on it to get tickets at $85.0 each. A lot of money for a couple making little. But this was going to be a night to remember. As soon as we were there to lock in on tickets we were dropped from the site. No chance now to see this event of a life time. Now I find out that a couple my friend knows got 2 tickets for $300.00 Years ago in 1977 in Wichita, Kansas I had the pleasure of seeing Merle at the Cotillion Ballroom on West Kellogg. Then again in 2007. What a show. Can you just imagine what it would be like to see him again? Will any one with Merle see this email and do something about scalping tickets. It is not fair to Merle and certainly not fair to his fans. Please help. It feels like being violated and you can not do a thing about it. Sincerely Roberta Gray Shell Knob, MO

  • Marilyn Smith | Jan 30, 2016 at 11:52 am

    I have been a Merle fan since 1965 and “Strangers” was my favorite song, and pretty much still is. Heard you are under the weather a little. I am your biggest fan in Fort Worth; (as far as Im concerned the biggest period! but im sure there are a lot of others out there just like me)..we have had many discussions on the changing country music scene in the last 50 years on your visits to Billy Bob;s Texas. I still have ALL of your vinyls, and the latest CD’s and have made sure my children and grandchildren know them all. Take care of yourself and remember all your fans out here are praying for a quick recovery .
    Remember “You got a Friend In Texas” and we are all waiting to see you at Billy Bob’s Texas soon.

  • Kaleb james | Jan 29, 2016 at 10:16 am

Your biggest fan ever! Kaleb James

  • Michael Botello | Jan 29, 2016 at 7:59 am

    Dear Mr. Haggard: I have listened to you since I first heard Okie From Muskogie in Vietnam; before 8 track tapes and long before CD’s. I loved the 8 tracks when I came back from Vietnam since I could drive and listen for hours and never have to change the tape. However, this is the first time I have written to you and your wife. Please know that my wife and I are praying for your recovery and future happiness. More importantly, since you know the Lord Jesus, your eternal happiness and success. We were going to see you at Inn Of The Mountain gods but you are recoveringfrom illness and we hope you will be well very soon. We look forward to seeing you in the future at another location and on Heaven’s Scene, as it is described in the Marine Corps hymn. Semper Fidelis in the Lord Jesus! Michael and Cheryl Botello
