HOUSTON – Country music legend Ray Price remains in a coma Sunday despite reports of his death following an erroneous report by his son, according to Rolling Stone magazine.
Earlier Sunday, Cliff Ray Price said that his father had indeed died in hospice care at his home in Mt. Pleasant, Texas. However, later Janie Price, Ray’s wife said that the singer is in a coma and still alive.
She said that her son's statement had been released prematurely, the magazine reported.
Cliff Price then posted the following on his father’s Facebook page:
“I believe I have been deceived by some cruel people and they need to stop this. I understand my Dads is still alive but barely hanging on.”
