The Bakersfield singer-songwriter, who thrived after an early life of crime and a prison term in San Quentin, died on his birthday. Merle Haggard, who overcame a youth of deprivation and imprisonment to become one of the enduring figures in hardcore country music, died Wednesday on his 79th birthday. The singer underwent surgery for lung cancer in 2008 and had been hospitalized for various ailments over the past few years - most notably for pneumonia, which forced several concert postponements and cancellations in 2015 and this year. He died at his home in Northern California, his agent said. Haggard was born April 6, 1937, in Oildale, Calif.
