Country legend Johnny Cash is back in the hospital with bronchitis. The 69-year-old entertainer was listed in stable condition last night (Oct. 31), according to a spokesperson for Nashville's Baptist Hospital. He had been released from the hospital Oct. 22 after two weeks of treatment for bronchitis that began on Oct. 7.

Cash suffers from autonomic neuropathy, a disease of the nervous system that makes him susceptible to pneumonia. He has been hospitalized with it four times since 1998.
