A spokesman for Grammy winning country musician Ray Price says the singer is home in Texas recuperating after surgery to remove polyps from his colon.
Price's agent, Bobby Roberts, says Price was admitted to a hospital in his home state on June 22 for routine medical tests when a colonoscopy revealed a large number of polyps in the pre-cancerous stage.
Roberts says the surgery was successfully completed the next day.
He says the 83-year-old entertainer is alert and expects to be back on the road in a few weeks.
Price began his career in the 1950s as a honky tonk singer with hits like "Crazy Arms" and "Heartache by the Numbers." Later, he moved in a pop direction with orchestration on hits such as "Danny Boy" and "For the Good Times."
