NASHVILLE — Johnny Cash has been undergoing treatment for bronchitis at Baptist Hospital here since Sunday. The country legend is listed in stable condition, a spokeswoman for the hospital said Wednesday morning (October 10).
Cash, 69, suffers from autonomic neuropathy, a disease that makes him susceptible to pneumonia. The singer has been hospitalized for pneumonia several times since 1997 and was admitted to Baptist Hospital twice last October and again in February. “It doesn’t look serious,” Cash’s manager, Lou Robin, told The Tennessean, “but because of his condition we don’t take any chances.”
