Hal Ketchum Suffering From Alzheimer’s Disease

Hal Ketchum is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease/dementia, according to a post made by his wife Andrea on Hal’s official Facebook page.

Hal, 66, had a string of hits in the 1990s, including “Small Town Saturday Night,” “Sure Love,” “Hearts Are Gonna Roll” and more.

Andrea shared the news via Facebook to quell speculation related to Hal’s lack of future tour dates.

“Unfortunately, Hal is suffering from Alzheimer’s/ Dementia,” said Andrea, in part. “He has been battling this for some time now, but because of his love for his fans, he continued performing as long as it was possible. Dementia is an exhausting and confusing illness and now it’s time for Hal to stay home with loved ones. Hal is otherwise healthy and happy, enjoying time with his family and friends.”
