Porter Wagoner Recuperating From Surgery

Porter Wagoner is recuperating at a Nashville hospital after undergoing surgery Friday (July 14) to repair an abdominal aortic aneurysm. The surgery was successful, and doctors anticipate a full recovery for Wagoner, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry.
