Ray Price Death Reports Wrong, But Country Star Fading Due to Cancer

Monday, 16 Dec 2013 06:07 PM

By Morgan Chilson

False stories that Ray Price had died following his battle with pancreatic cancer circulated Sunday and were quickly retracted, but may soon become true as Price, a famed country musician, is failing, Billboard reported.

Price’s son, Cliff Price, erroneously reported on his Facebook page that he heard his father died; the story was quickly picked up by news media Sunday before it was determined to be untrue.

Rolling Stone talked to Janie Price, Ray Price’s wife, after the story came out and quickly updated their inaccurate information.

"He is still with us. It's been an honor to walk this road with him," she told Rolling Stone of her husband. "It's a sad day. We are losing a great man."

Price is 87 years old and continued performing well into his 80s.

"I just like what I've done and how it's worked out, and it's been great," Price told Rolling Stone in his final interview earlier in December. "I haven't lost my voice, thank God for that."

The country music singer is a legend, impressive as a singer and songwriter.

“The last time I worked with him, he walked up on that stage and sang hit after hit,” Loretta Lynn told Rolling Stone. “I looked at my friend and said, 'I didn't realize that many hits were there.' Forty something hits or more.”

Friend of the family Bill Mack is releasing information on Price’s condition and Janie Price asked that people contact him or watch his Facebook page for updates.

As of Monday afternoon, he said, “There have been no changes in Ray Price's 'condition.' I'm staying in constant contact with Janie and others, including those representing hospice-care. If no updates are presented, it is because there have been no changes in our pal's condition.”
