Okie from Muskogee will perform at Cheyenne Frontier Days

Here's some good news -- and get-well-soon wishes from fans in Cheyenne (from the Casper Star-Tribune):
Country music legend Merle Haggard plans to play Cheyenne Frontier Days this summer. 
Event organizers said Haggard would play July 22 with Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band, of Wyoming, as the opening act. 
It will be the second time Haggard has played at Frontier Days. The first was in 1979. 
Tickets go on sale on Friday. 
Frontier Days runs from July 20-29. Other performers who are set to appear include Hank Williams Jr., Reba McEntire and the Zac Brown Band. 
On Wednesday, Haggard's publicist announced the singer is being treated for pneumonia in a Georgia hospital and has had to cancel the rest of his January concert dates.
