Country icon Ray Price, who made headlines earlier this year over a public tiff with Blake Shelton due to comments the latter made about country music's elder statesmen and classic artists, referring to them as "old farts," has been readmitted to the hospital. The singer has been in and out of facilities over the past several weeks.
Legendary country star Ray Price has been battling pancreatic cancer, but there's good news for the veteran entertainer. The 87-year-old singer has announced that his cancer is in remission, and he will be undergoing physical therapy as the next phase of his treatment.
