Johnny Cash has been released from hospitalised with an unspecified stomach condition.

The country music legend was due to appear at the VMA awards in New York last month, but instead – according to manager Lou Robin – watched the ceremony from his bed in the Nashville Baptist Hospital.

After two weeks, he has now been released. A spokeswoman for the hospital said he was “home resting”.

Johnny Cash has been admitted several times over recent years due to autonomic neuropathy, a disease that makes him particularly vulnerable to pneumonia.

He is also working on a new album.
