Country Legend Ray Price Diagnosed With Cancer

Ray Price

Country Music Hall of Fame member Ray Price has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and has undergone six months of chemotherapy, he confirmed in a recent interview with the San Antonio Express-News. The cancer was discovered while his gallbladder was being removed after a gall stone attack. Following chemotherapy, the tumor has not grown, he told the newspaper.

As a result of the illness, he has curtailed his touring, but he has concert dates scheduled through June 2013, including a Nov. 18 show in Austin, Texas. He also plans to visit Nashville this month to begin recording a new album. “The doctor said that every man will have cancer if he lives to be old enough,” the 86-year-old singer said. “I don’t know why I got it. I ain’t old.”
