Country singer Ray Price, 87, has pancreatic cancer that has spread to other organs. One of the best, period.

To make matters worse, there were rumors of his death earlier today. Channel 56 on XM kept giving updates and saying the reports were false.

I caught that as well. I am close to Nashville and one of the TV stations posted he was dead then had to retract it. I think it originated from a family member or something. When news breaks about a Nashville singer we usually hear it first over national stuff.

Rather appropriate for his passing...

Ray Price was one of the pioneers of electric instruments and the use of drums in country music.  Moon Mullican is generally credited with being THE first, but Price adopted the practice early in his career.  Ray Price' specialty if you will, was the practice of taking the "4 square" western swing beat and slowing it to a ballad tempo.  "(I Hope I Don't Have To Go Through) Getting Over You Again" was the epitome of this practice.  The 4 square beat is where the bass drum and bass guitar are beat together on every beat, in 4/4 time.  This tempo is traditionally fast for swing dancing.  Ray Price also got lots of heat by the press, Nashville in general and even his fans for adopting the Nashville sound and seemingly abandoning his honky-tonk fans.  Ray Price was especially suited for this sound due to his naturally lush and rangy vocals.  Chet Atkins generally abandoned the steel guitar in the Nashville sound.  Ray Price and Don Law at Columbia Records not only modified the Atkins sound, but also included steel guitar along with a multi-piece string orchestra that travelled with Price on his concert appearances.  He once sang with a symphony orchestra in a tux and tails.....and cowboy boots.  Ray Price recorded an album of standards, non-country material that he especially appreciated.  Such action, and his advancing age and his general disgust with Nashville and modern country music, precipitated his demise with Columbia records.  I don't have all of Ray Price's material, but I have lots of it.  My opinion is that Ray Price never recorded a bad note.
