Reports of singer Ray Price's death that hit the internet Sunday were incorrect, his family confirms.
The Country Music Hall of Fame member, is indeed still alive in Mt. Pleasant, Texas, continuing his tough battle with pancreatic cancer.
The death of Price, one of country's biggest stars from the 1950s through the 1970s, was first reported by CMT News then subsequently picked up by other media outlets — including TheWrap. We deeply regret the error.
Rolling Stone spoke to Price's wife, who said their son made a mistake and posted the news too early.
