Grand Ole Opry legend Porter Wagoner was released from a Nashville hospital Wednesday, July 26, after recovering from surgery to repair an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Porter, 78, was taken to the hospital July 14 after becoming ill at his home in Nashville. Doctors expect him to make a full recovery after spending a few weeks at home, according to Porter’s daughter Deborah Loy. “We wish Porter the best and look forward to having him back on the Opry very soon,” said Pete Fisher, vice president and general manager of the Grand Ole Opry.
