Stories on Johnny Cash, Wilco, and Isaac Stern.
Country legend Johnny Cash was released from Nashville's Baptist Hospital yesterday (Oct. 22), according to his management company, Artists Consultants, Inc. The 69-year-old singer was admitted to the hospital Oct. 7 with bronchitis and was said to be in stable condition throughout most of his stay.
Cash suffers from autonomic neuropathy, a disease of the nervous system that makes him susceptible to pneumonia. He has been hospitalized with pneumonia four times since 1998, the latest time coming this past February.
His latest release was 2000's "American III: Solitary Man" (American), which debuted at No. 11 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart.
