Country singer Ray Price has died at the age of 87, CMT News is reporting Sunday.

The Country Music Hall of Fame member, who was a hitmaker from the 1950s through the 1970s, died Sunday at his home in Mount Pleasant, Texas, following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Whether moaning honky-tonk blues or purring an intimate love song, Ray Price set dauntingly high standards. To appreciate his musical reach, one had only to listen to his first hit, "Talk to Your Heart" (1952), move on to the earnest shuffle of "City Lights" (1958) and then consider his sonorous, lavishly orchestrated "For the Good Times" (1970).
