Legendary singer Ray Price was rushed to the hospital Tuesday night (Oct.8) for sepsis, an infection in his blood. Ray, who has been battling pancreatic cancer, has had a few health scares in recent months that left him hospitalized.

His wife, Janie, posted an update to fans on Ray's facebook page:

Hello Friends,
Just wanted to give you an update on Ray. Last night Ray developed SEPSIS, a bad bacteria infection in his blood line. We rushed him to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit and treatment was started.

Rays blood pressure dropped too low and his heart rate too high. We were in watchful crisis all night long and through out early morning hours before he stabilized. Dr. Red Duke is here in charge and coordinating all of the Specialists treating Ray.

I am at Rays bedside and have not left him for a second. I will continue to be ever watchful and give updates as Ray continues to improve.

Please remember Ray in your prayers tonight.
Blessings To All!
Janie Price
