Country Music Hall of Fame singer/songwriter "Whisperin'" Bill Anderson is recovering following surgery for removal of skin cancer.
Anderson reported on his Facebook wall that he underwent facial surgery to remove basal cell carcinoma on Wednesday (5/6). "It was not as deeply rooted as first feared," Anderson wrote. The doctors have ordered him to take it easy for the next two weeks ("read, watch TV, and rest" as Bill put it).
The 77-year-old country music legend hopes he can return to the Opry by the end of the month.
Here's wishing Whisperin' Bill a speedy and complete recovery!
