Ray Price is not dead as reported earlier today. Price did leave the care of hospice last week and went home to spend his final days with family and friends. Reports of Ray Price’s death have caused quite a bit of confusion in the country music world.

Entertainment reporter Jimmy Carter’s Twitter post on Dec. 15 at approximately 6:05 p.m. stated that Ray Price’s wife Janie has confirmed that although the 87-year-old Price has slipped into a coma, Ray Price has not died.

Country Music Hall of Famer Ray Price’s son Cliff Price posted to his Facebook page that his father had passed but is not at his father’s bedside in Mount Pleasant, Texas.

“I have heard my Dad has passed and I believe it. I love you Dad and I will see you again someday. Cliff Price.”

According to a Dec. 15 Facebook post from Ray's wife Janie Price the Country Music Hall of Famer is still alive:

“At this time our loveable Ray Price is still with us. When it is time there will be an official statement [from] Bill Mack.”

The country music world seems to be conflicted and confused about whether or not Ray Price has died. CMT, the number one outlet for country music news, reported Ray Price’s death earlier in the day, but pulled the article from the website. Other news outlets, including The Tennessean and USA Today also reported incorrectly reported Ray Price's death.
