After a string of serious health issues and cancelled concerts,  Merle Haggard said in a statement on Wednesday that he’s “feeling good and ready to get back on the bus.”

He was hospitalized multiple times in the past few months, received treatment for double pneumonia, stomach ulcers, the removal of eight polyps from his colon and esophageal diverticulitis.

Even with all of this, Haggard has been trying to return on the road and miss as few shows as possible.  Now,  he’s feeling better and hitting the road once again. His first show will be on Feb. 28 in Tuscon, Ariz.

Haggard released his most recent record, ‘Working in Tennessee,’ in October.
