Wade Hayes Undergoes Cancer Surgery

"Though recovery is difficult and painful, he is doing well."

Wade Hayes, best known for his 1995 No. 1 hit "Old Enough to Know Better," underwent surgery for stage IV colon cancer on Thursday (Dec. 8) in Nashville.

The 42-year-old Oklahoma native will continue treatment at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in the coming weeks.

On Monday afternoon (Dec. 12), his Facebook page administrator updated Wade's status, writing, "I've talked with Wade's mother and she wants you to know how much she appreciates your prayers and support. His surgery for cancer was long and complex, but went better than the surgeon had anticipated. Though recovery is difficult and painful, he is doing well. Praise God!"

In all, Wade scored six Billboard Top 10 singles and also released one single with Mark McClurg as McHayes.
