Country Singer Ferlin Husky Recovering At Home

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A spokesman for country star Ferlin Husky says the singer is recuperating at home after being released from a Nashville hospital.

The 83-year-old singer was admitted to the hospital July 2 and treated for an accelerated heart rate, possible pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Heart of Texas Records President Tracy Pitcox said Tuesday that Husky was released Friday and is resting at his home near Nashville. Husky also has a home in Vienna, Mo.

Husky was country music's top entertainer in the early 1960s with hits like "Wings of a Dove" and "Gone." His latest album, released in 2007, is called "The Way It Was."

Pitcox says Husky hopes to return to the road but does not have any shows scheduled.
