Ray Price Has Not Died Depsite Earlier Reports
Price's son inadvertently issued a statement about his father's passing prematurely. When Price does die and it sounds like it's only a matter to time, the announcement will be made on Bill Mack Facebook page. His last post read. 'As of 7:00PM, the great Ray Price is still with us, although obviously fading from the cancer. This was verified by Janie Price less than an hour ago (6:00PM, Central). Just wanted to release this “update” because so many of you have issued your concerns. Thank you! It’s been a long day since Janie called me this morning notifying me of his “failing condition”, but I’ve had the opportunity to observe hundreds of caring, loving messages. What a deserving compliment to Ray.'
Country stars are sending their prayers to Price and his family on Twitter.

Now there is conflicting info about Ray Price. News outlets reporting unconfirmed passings should be fined or shut down #disrespectful
