Legendary country singer Ray Price has been released from the hospital after an extended stay. The 87-year-old star returned home and began physical therapy on Thursday (May 30) after being hospitalized since May 13 for severe dehydration.

The Country Music Hall of Famer, whose hits include ‘For the Good Times,’ ‘Release Me’ and ‘Make the World Go Away,’ was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year, when doctors found a tumor while removing his gallbladder after he suffered an attack of gallstones. In February he announced that his cancer was in remission and that he would be undergoing physical therapy in the next stage of his recovery.

A bad reaction to a medication for Post Radiation Syndrome caused the singer’s dehydration and subsequent hospital stay, but he let his fans know he was feeling better in the following post to Facebook: “Hello Friends, I am finally home!!! Already in Rehab!! More later. Ray.”

According to Pollstar, the veteran entertainer has three shows on the books for June and July.
