Listen to Ray Price on iHeartRadio

Ray Price is in the hospital.  The country legend revealed the news himself via Facebook, explaining in a post Monday afternoon that he'd been admitted for "severe dehydration." 

Price added that doctors were "pouring the fluids" into him, and that he was "feeling much better."  The 87-year-old Country Music Hall of Famer said he wanted fans to get the information from him first, before it was picked up by the media. 

He also said his wife Janie was going to "keep you all posted." 

Price doesn't say if his dehydration is related to his cancer.  The singer revealed last fall that he was being treated for pancreatic cancer.  Earlier this year he announced that his condition was improving, and the cancer was in remission.
