On Monday, 71-year old country star, Merle Haggard, went under the knife in CA to have a malignant tumor removed from his lung.
According to reports, doctors informed the crooner about a spot on his lung in May.
He revealed to his hometown paper, The Bakersfield Californian, in August that he wasn't going to seek treatment, but friends and family members convinced him otherwise.
We're glad he reconsidered and wish him a speedy recover.
