The legend recovers from a bout of bronchitis...

Country legend JOHNNY CASH has been released from hospital in NASHVILLE.

As previously reported, the vocalist, 69, was taken to the Baptist Hospital in Nashville earlier this month (October 7), where he was treated for bronchitis.

Now, US press reports suggest that the star was released on Monday (October 22). He had been listed as stable throughout the majority of his stay.

Cash has been previously diagnosed with autonomic neuropathy, which makes him susceptible to pneumonia. As a result, his manager Lou Robin said the hospitalisation was a precautionary measure.
