Ferlin Husky Hospitalized
Country singer Ferlin Husky was admitted to the hospital last week for the second time in recent months. According a post on his website, the 83-year-old performer was admitted to Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tenn., on July 2, with an accelerated heart rate. Doctors are treating Husky for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and said he might be battling pneumonia as well.
Husky was placed in the hospital's critical care unit, where he underwent tests throughout the weekend. In April, the singer, who's best known for the 1960 pop-country hit 'Wings of a Dove,' was hospitalized in Springfield, Mo. for a week, where he received treatment for pneumonia and congestive heart failure.
