Country icon Merle Haggard has died on his 79th birthday.

Haggard’s manager, Frank Mull, said Haggard died at home in Palo Cedro, California, of pneumonia.

The death came just a few days after the singer canceled his April concert dates after suffering from a recurring bout of double pneumonia.

In a statement issued by his publicist last week Merle said: ‘I want to thank my fans for their prayers and well wishes.

‘I hope to be back on the road in May, but I’m taking it one day at a time.’

The statement said that his doctors wanted him to take one more month off the road to rest and recover.

The singer of hits like Okie From Muskogee, Mama Tried and Workin’ Man Blues had also cancelled dates in February and March.
