Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NASHVILLE — Coun­try singer­song­writer John Prine says he’s been di­ag­nosed with an op­er­a­ble form of lung can­cer. A note on the 67-year-old Prine’s web­site says he will un­dergo surgery next month, forc­ing the post­pone­ment of two dates in Louisville, Ky. Prine says in the note that doc­tors found the can­cer early and “see no rea­son why I won’t fully re­cover.” The can­cer is not re­lated to the squa­mous cell can­cer on his neck for which he was treated in the mid-1990s. Prine’s man­age­ment con­firmed the de­tails of the post. The An­gel from Mont­gomery singer post­poned dates in Wis­con­sin ear­lier this month due to ill­ness.
