NASHVILLE, Tenn. (NewsChannel 5/AP) – There have been conflicting reports circulating that County Music legend Ray Price has died.

Price's son, Cliff, had confirmed the death Sunday afternoon on his Facebook page, but later retracted the statement. A credible source close to the family also confirmed the death to NewsChannel 5.

Price's wife Janie said he remains in hospice care at his Mount Pleasant home in Texas, where he has been since Thursday.

Price was recently discharged from East Texas Medical Center in Tyler, Texas.  He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2011 and it had recently spread to his liver, intestines and lungs, the hospital said. His family said he wanted to spend his "final days" at home.
