86-year old Country Music Hall of Fame member Ray Price confirms that he has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He has undergone six months of chemotherapy after the cancer was discovered while his gallbladder was being removed after a gall stone attack.

Price has put any tour plans on hold as a result of his diagnosis. He has concert dates scheduled through June 2013 including an upcoming show in Austin, Texas on November 18. He was to visit Nashville later this month to begin recording a new album, but that too has been put on hold for now.
