Merle Haggard has canceled his January shows, including Saturday's show at Billy Bob's Texas, due to illness. Haggard has been diagnosed with pneumonia.

Billy Bob's Texas says that refunds will be available at the point of purchase, and folks planning to attend (maybe Stock Show attendees who wanted to slide on over?) will get free admission to Billy Bob's on Saturday night.

But the show will go on -- just not with Merle. Austin Allsup will take the stage instead of Haggard.

General admission for those without Merle Haggard tickets will be $10.

Haggard has not announced plans to return to Billy Bob's yet.

Back in August, Haggard had to cancel another show at the honky tonk due to doctor's orders.
