Phish camp in Denver canceled due to plague-stricken prairie dogs

Thousands of people who planned to camp during three days of Phish concerts at a stadium outside Denver will no longer be able to because of concerns that fleas in and around nearby prairie dog burrows could spread the plague.

The Denver Post reports public health officials are still finding infected fleas in fields surrounding Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. The stadium’s owner decided to ban camping during the concerts over Labor Day weekend, and the band posted the notice on its website Tuesday.

Greg Laurie: Johnny Cash’s story is a roadmap for every conflicted soul

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6074400584001_6074398389001-vs Greg Laurie: Johnny Cash's story is a roadmap for every conflicted soul Greg Laurie fox-news/opinion fox-news/entertainment/music fox-news/columns/faith-and-fame fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 9c4241c4-cb73-52b7-92b1-402e2c7f6e34

Johnny Cash — a sinner or a saint?

To many sinners, he was a saint, even a prophet-like figure. He was admired by idols of days gone by, ranging from Elvis Presley, Keith Richards, and Carl Perkins to modern-day rockers like Bono, Jack White, and Trent Reznor.

To many saints, he was a conflicted man, who struggled with drugs and the law and a lot more most people don’t know about.

GREG LAURIE: WHY YOU SHOULD LET GOD WORRY FOR YOU

He was actually both.

On March 28, 2003, country music officially became the “House of Cash” when Country Music Television named Johnny Cash the most important male artist in the history of the genre, above such luminaries as Chet Atkins, Eddy Arnold, Gene Autry, Jimmie Rogers, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, George Jones, and Hank Williams.

In his lifetime, Cash was also inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. In addition, he was a recipient of the highest honor given to artists in America, the National Medal of Arts, in recognition of his numerous musical contributions.

Cash was to country music what Elvis Presley was to rock and roll. His legend and stature has grown exponentially since his passing on Sept. 12, 2003. In many ways, Cash has eclipsed Elvis.

His legacy as country music’s most iconic star remains firm, but I believe Johnny Cash would want others to also focus on something else other than his entertainment achievements: his firm belief in Jesus Christ.

In my new book, “Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon,” I explore this complex superstar’s journey to faith.

Though many books have been written about “The Man in Black,” this one is different. I would describe it as a “spiritual biography.”

Like millions of people, I was touched personally by Cash’s life and music.

My own fandom comes from a very personal place. Cash was a touchstone in my life dating back to my childhood. I remember watching him perform on television with my grandparents and hearing that deep booming voice—once called “The Voice of America.”

At the peak of his career, Cash had done it all—living the ultimate rags-to-riches story of growing up on a cotton farm in the Deep South to becoming a Nashville and Hollywood sensation, singing alongside heroes like Elvis Presley and performing for several American presidents.

During his heyday, Cash was constantly in the news. Not all the headlines were stellar. He was often embroiled in scandal or controversy stemming from high-profile arrests, car accidents, and other drug- and alcohol-induced escapades, including one resulting in a forest fire that devastated over 500 acres.

More from Opinion

Sometimes Cash’s dark side often overruled his true nature. His behavior caused collateral damage to his family and friends, resulting in heartbreak, betrayal, and sadness. He felt his trials and tribulations were akin to those endured by the Apostle Peter, who at one point even denied knowing Jesus. Like Peter, Cash stumbled, fell, dusted himself off, and got back up again.

In reality, John R. Cash was a lot like you and a lot like me.

The superstar was an old hand at petitioning God and hailing Him as the author of his salvation. But the fact is that he usually ran to God when a crisis was at hand and he needed rescuing, the same as the rest of us mere mortals. Also like some of us, Cash was a natural backslider who kept God’s number on speed-dial for emergencies but otherwise sought direction and fulfillment through earthly channels. A lot of people live this way.

In reality, John R. Cash was a lot like you and a lot like me.

Cash’s faith was tested many times in his lifetime, and it only grew stronger, not weaker. Near the end of his life, Cash was speaking openly about his “unshakeable faith.” What caused him to turn from his conflicting passions to embrace a life in Christ?

Understanding his triumphs, defeats, redemption, and story arc offers a way for people to understand that no one is beyond hope, which is why I have embarked on this project.

The truth of the whole man is compelling, and the story of Johnny Cash is a roadmap for every conflicted soul for whom redemption too often seems a destination far off the beaten path.

If it happened for Johnny Cash, it can happen for you.

Blake Shelton denies shading Lil Nas X in Trace Adkins duet referencing ‘Old Town Road’

Despite Lil Nas X smashing records left and right with “Old Town Road” and Billy Ray Cyrus, not everyone is a fan.

Blake Shelton and Trace Adkins‘ collaboration, “Hell Right,” references the county-rap hit, and their sentiments about the song seem less than flattering.

In “Hell Right,” Shelton, 43, sings, “Then the girl from the small town took off the ‘Old Town,’ put on a little Hank Jr.” Adkins, 57, then quips, “Thank God.”

LIL NAS X BREAKS BILLBOARD RECORD FOR MOST WEEKS AT NO. 1

Still, “The Voice” judge denied, through his rep, that he was shading Lil Nas X.

“It’s absolutely not throwing any kind of shade at Lil Nas X at all,” Shelton’s rep told Variety in a statement on Friday. “Blake says this literally has nothing to do with anything at all except how much the song is played. It could have been ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ or any other (overplayed) song.”

LIL NAS X COUNTRY-RAP SMASH ‘OLD TOWN ROAD’ DIVIDES CMA VOTERS

PETE BUTTIGIEG REPORTEDLY BAILS ON BUZZFEED EVENT AFTER LIL NAS X REFUSES A DUET

Shelton’s rep added, “Blake talked to Billy Ray and he thought it was funny.”

Shelton previously told Billboard of the track, “You can raise hell, or you can raise hell right. It’s about cutting loose and having fun the right way. I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles these days, but when I hear songs like this on the radio, I am immediately thinking about being back home and what I’d be doing if I was there. The first time I heard ‘God’s Country’ I was on my ranch in Oklahoma. As a guy who actually lives this lifestyle, ‘Hell Right’ hits me in the soul now just as much as ‘God’s Country’ did then.”

Neither Shelton nor Adkins actually wrote the lyric. The barnburner was penned by David Garcia, Brett Tyler and Michael Hardy.

Duane Allman’s old guitar ‘Layla’ sells for $1.25 million

Fans of Duane Allman in Macon, Georgia, say they didn’t expect the late musician’s old guitar to sell for $1.25 million at a recent auction.

The gold-topped guitar is the one Allman played in the hit song “Layla,” where he performed with Eric Clapton, The Telegraph reported .

Until recently, the guitar affectionately called “Layla” had been on display at the Allman Brothers Band museum at The Big House in Macon.

MANAGER: GREGG ALLMAN PLAYED MUSIC TIL THE VERY END

“I don’t think anybody expected that,” Museum Director Richard Brent said of the amount. “The history of it is what sold it.”

Brent said the man who bought the guitar at the auction is an out-of-town collector who wishes to remain anonymous.

The buyer has agreed to share the instrument with the museum during certain times. That means it will be coming back to the museum in late November, Brent said.

“It will be coming back to The Big House in late November,” Brent said. “We couldn’t ask for more than that.”

Duane Allman played the guitar on the first two Allman Brothers records, and in “Loan Me a Dime” with Boz Scaggs, Brent said. The recording “Layla” with Derek and the Dominoes is among the last times Allman played that guitar.

Peter Fonda partied with Beatles, inspired a line in ‘She Said She Said’: report

Westlake Legal Group Peter-Fonda Peter Fonda partied with Beatles, inspired a line in 'She Said She Said': report fox-news/entertainment/music fox-news/entertainment/events/departed fox news fnc/entertainment fnc Brie Stimson article 800bee3d-b582-520e-999d-b5ba508700cc

Peter Fonda, who died Friday at 79, was not only part of the fabric of 1960s Hollywood with movies like “Easy Rider,” he also reportedly helped inspire a line in the 1966 song “She Said She Said” while tripping on acid with the Beatles one night.

In the summer of 1965, Fonda showed up at a Beatles house party on Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles, according to The Los Angeles Times.

STARS PAY TRIBUTE TO THE LATE PETER FONDA

Some of the guests (including the Beatles) were dropping acid, and Fonda, who later said he was high on LSD when he arrived, remembered that he tried to calm down guitarist George Harrison who thought he was dying.

“I told him there was nothing to be afraid of and that all he needed to do was relax,” Fonda said. “I said that I knew what it was like to be dead because when I was 10 years old, I’d accidentally shot myself in the stomach and my heart stopped beating three times while I was on the operating table because I’d lost so much blood.”

Fonda said John Lennon overhead him say “I know what it’s like to be dead.”

“He looked at me and said, ‘You’re making me feel like I’ve never been born. Who put all that sh– in your head?’” Fonda recalled, according to The Times.

Lennon later said that Fonda kept coming up to him and repeating the line.

“We didn’t want to hear about that!” he said. “We were on an acid trip and the sun was shining and the girls were dancing and the whole thing was beautiful and ‘60s, and this guy — who I really didn’t know; he hadn’t made ‘Easy Rider’ or anything — kept coming over, wearing shades, saying, ‘I know what it’s like to be dead,’ and we kept leaving him because he was so boring! And I used it for the song,” The Times reported.

Kiefer Sutherland is recovering after a serious fall while touring for his new country album, “Reckless & Me,” in Europe.

The actor-singer, 52, revealed he suffered injuries to a rib when he slipped on the stairs to a bus while traveling to Denmark for a show on Thursday.

The former “24” star added that he has to cancel his last few shows but plans to return in the fall to perform when he’s healed.

“Sadly I slipped on the stairs of the bus whilst traveling to Denmark and seriously injured a rib, making it difficult to breathe and impossible to sing,” Sutherland wrote on his Instagram.

“Regretfully, I will not be able to perform the last 3 shows of our tour, but have every intension [sic] of making up these shows in September / October when we return.”

“I am so sorry for any inconvenience that I have caused to the fans who bought tickets. I will do everything I can to make it up to you. Thank you for your understanding. Sincerely, Kiefer,” he added.

Sutherland released his new album in April and started his tour back in May with a concert in Austin, Texas.

“Music was something that I became really seriously attached to as a really young person because I had an older brother who I idolized and he was the biggest music fan in the world,” he told People magazine in 2016.

“I just wanted to be exactly like him. I made the joke that I was probably the only third grader that was listening to Aerosmith, so country music was not the music that I certainly grew up on,” he said.

Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend slams Jay-Z for NFL partnership

Westlake Legal Group Colin-Kaepernick-split Colin Kaepernick's girlfriend slams Jay-Z for NFL partnership Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/sports/nfl fox-news/sports fox-news/person/colin-kaepernick fox-news/entertainment/music fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 17dd8e6c-bea0-553f-be17-138dd4cbcb15

The girlfriend of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick blasted hip-hop star Jay-Z over his recently announced partnership with the NFL, calling it “disgusting and disappointing.”

“We will never turn our backs on @kaepernick7 because your idols decided to work with the same organization that is actively keeping Colin unemployed all because he peacefully protested against social injustice in black and brown communities, specifically police brutality,” radio personality Nessa wrote on Instagram Thursday night.

“So really, how can Jay-Z and the NFL utter social justice in their partnership while keeping Colin unemployed because of his social justice work?”

Earlier this week, the NFL announced that it is collaborating with Jay-Z’s entertainment company, Roc Nation, which will help select music artists for high-profile performances including the Super Bowl.

KAEPERNICK SHARES VIDEO CELEBRATING 3-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF KNEELING DURING ANTHEM

As part of the partnership, Roc Nation will have a role in the NFL’s “Inspire Change” campaign, which aims to strengthen social justice. However, the Grammy-winning rapper is facing backlash for his business deal after previously showing solidarity with Kaepernick. Kaepernick gained notoriety, and the scorn of figures including President Trump, for faking a knee during the national anthem to call attention to social injustice and police brutality in minority communities.

“It’s typical for the NFL to buy different PR looks to cover up their dirt- that’s nothing new. But what is disgusting and disappointing is Jay-Z let them use him,” Nessa told her Instagram followers. “Whether Jay-Z knew it or not (I don’t doubt his intelligence-so I would think he knew) he helped the NFL bury who he said is an iconic figure, Colin Kaepernick.”

She continued, “Don’t tell me there’s a “master plan and wait for it” because the ONLY reason anything would ever change is because THE PEOPLE are loud and clear and won’t let the league buy their loyalty with their disingenuous moves. The people are letting the league and anyone who works with them know that they aren’t buying the bs.”

The comments came as Kaepernick recently celebrated the three-year anniversary since he began kneeling during the anthem in order to protest police brutality.

Former Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy suffers heart attack

Westlake Legal Group bauhaus Former Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy suffers heart attack Variety Jem Aswad fox-news/entertainment/music fnc/entertainment fnc article 1fd7db0e-3734-572c-9608-919f4cb2f29d

Singer Peter Murphy was rushed to a New York hospital Tuesday evening after suffering shortness of breath that was later revealed to be a heart attack, according to his rep.

The longtime Bauhaus singer was forced to postpone Tuesday’s scheduled concert at the Greenwich Village venue Le Poisson Rouge, where he has been performing a residency comprised of his solo albums and one evening of David Bowie songs.

The concerts scheduled for Aug. 13, 15, 16, 18 and 19, have been postponed, with dates to be determined. Ticket buyers will have their tickets transferred to the corresponding rescheduled date, or can request a refund by emailing info@lprnyc.com by 5 p.m. ET on August 30, 2019.

Cardiologist Jason Song, MD of Lenox Hill Hospital, treated the singer and issued the following statement:

“Mr. Murphy was admitted for treatment of a myocardial infarction. He had two stents placed in his right coronary artery and was started on medications to manage his heart condition.
