Bill Anderson is thanking fans for their prayers while he recovers from cataract surgery, which he underwent earlier this week.

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday (Oct. 13) to show his appreciation and let fans know he is doing well.

"My cataract surgery went well today, and I thank each of you who whispered a prayer on my behalf," he writes. "They did my right eye this time, and will do my left on the 21st. If you think of it, another little prayer next Wednesday would be appreciated as well."

He goes on to say that God Is Great - God Is Good is much more than the title of an album.

"It's true every day, and I can't wait to see His beautiful creations more clearly now than ever before," Anderson adds. "God bless you all."

Known to many country fans as Whisperin' Bill for his soft vocals, the 77-year-old has recorded more than 40 albums and has numerous No. 1 songs, including "Mama Sang a Song," "Still," "I Get the Fever" and "For Loving You." He has also written songs that have been recorded by everyone from Ray Price and Conway Twitty to Brad Paisley and Kenny Chesney.
