Johnny Cash Hospitalised

Country star JOHNNY CASH's plans to attend tonight's (28AUG03) MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS have been scuttled - he's in hospital for an unspecified stomach ailment.

Cash, 71, whose video for his song HURT received six VMA nominations, is currently in a stable condition after being admitted to Nashville, Tennessee's BAPTIST HOSPITAL on Monday (25AUG03).

Baptist Hospital spokeswoman JENNIFER JACKSON says, "He's being held for observation and treatment. We expect to release him within a few days."

Cash's manager, LOU ROBIN, says the illness was an "isolated incident", adding that the country singer had planned to go to Los Angeles next week (ends05SEP03) to record a new album. Robin says Cash will now watch the New York awards show on TV.
