JOHNNY CASH IN HOSPITAL
The legendary Johnny Cash was admitted to a Nashville hospital Sunday with pneumonia and was listed in serious but stable condition as of Monday morning.
The Man in Black has had several frightening bouts with pneumonia in the past, once admitting that he nearly lost his battle with the illness in the fall of 1998. The year prior, Johnny had been diagnosed with a Parkinson's-like nervous system disorder called Shy-Drager's, but revealed last year that he had been misdiagnosed.
According to several interviews with the singer, whose career was laced with such memorable hits as "Ring of Fire" and "Folsom Prison Blues", his health had been improving steadily over the last year or so.
Cash, an eight-time Grammy winner, is nominated for two Grammys this year.
