Porter Wagoner Battling Lung Cancer

The 80 year old Wagoner is in the hospital in serious condition. Dolly Parton visited her former duet partner in the hospital Friday and pledged to sing with him again. She promised to sing with him on the first night he returns to the Grand Ole Opry. Wagoner helped launch her career by hiring her as his duet partner in 1967.

Porter's daughter DJ maintains the message board on her dad's official website and that's a great place for fans to leave messages for him.

Known for his rhinestone stage outfits, Wagoner was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2002. He has been a Grand Ole Opry Member for more than 50 years.
