Grand Ole Opry's Wagoner has surgery
Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Veteran Grand Ole Opry star Porter Wagoner underwent surgery to repair an abdominal aortic aneurysm and is expected to make a full recovery, a spokeswoman said Saturday.

Wagoner had the surgery Friday and will remain in the hospital for several days, said Darlene Bieber, a spokeswoman for the country music radio show.

He was hospitalized after he became ill at his home Friday morning.

Wagoner, 78, famous for his rhinestone suits, helped launch the career of Dolly Parton by hiring her as his duet partner in 1967. His hits include "Carroll County Accident" and "A Satisfied Mind."

Wagoner missed his scheduled performance Friday night at the Opry, where he's sung since 1957.

Not a country music fan per se, but he's lucky they caught it in time.

And here I was wishing I was a singer... Wonder if there is a correlation to years of singing and AAA...
