Ray Price Undergoes Surgery
Country legend Ray Price is recovering after being hospitalized for surgery, June 23.
Ray, whose classic hits include "For the Good Times" and "Crazy Arms," was admitted to the hospital for routine medical tests. During the past several months, Ray had been losing weight and doctors feared he was suffering from exhaustion. The results of a colonoscopy revealed a large number of polyps in a pre-cancerous stage, requiring immediate surgical removal. Surgery was completed on Tuesday, June 23, and doctors state that the operation was a complete success. Ray's wife Janie reports that Ray, 83, is making a slow, steady recovery with family and friends around him.
