Merle Haggard’s family wants him to quit touring. He told “Garden & Gun” magazine, “I feel it’s a double-edged sword. It’s hard to split it up. I try to build a family life of a reasonable sort, and then go and jump on the bus.” Haggard admits he bought a new tour bus, despite his family’s wish that he come off the road. Haggard says, “It’s like the old sayin: ‘you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.'” Haggard has been battling double pneumonia since December, forcing him to cancel several concerts. ┬áLast time Merle got a new bus the old one hit ebay…so your next RV with sleeping bunks for the whole family might be on an auction site soon.
