Grammy winner Lynn Anderson was arrested on September 11th for DUI after she was involved in a collision in Nashville. She admitted to being under the influence of alcohol and prescription drugs at the time of the accident.

The 66 year old “Rose Garden” singer has had a string of similar incidents over the past decade which include being passed out in her car on the shoulder of the highway, accidents, and theft.

“I apologize for the choices I made and subsequent actions on Thursday evening that ultimately resulted in the accident,” she said. “By the grace of God, I am very grateful that no one was injured as a result. I am committed to the accountable steps that I will be facing on the road to recovery and am deeply sorry for anyone that I have harmed along this path.”

We hope Lynn gets the help she needs.

The town of Lake City in Tennessee has changed its name to Rocky Top, over the objections of the publishers of the song of the same name. Mayor Tim Sharp confirms the town council voted for the name change last night. The publishers of the song made a last-minute bid in federal court to stop the change. A group of developers hopes to capitalize on the name by building a complex that includes a 3D animated theater, a live music venue, an indoor-outdoor waterpark and a 500-seat paddleboat restaurant.

Kevin Sharp

Kevin Sharp, best known for his 1996 hit “Nobody Knows” died Saturday in his Fair Oaks, California home at the age of 43. He was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer as a senior in high school, and thanks to Make-a-Wish, he met famed producer David Foster, which started several ongoing conversations.

After going into remission in 1991, Sharp eventually released an album, Measure of a Man in 1996 which garnered his no. 1 single “Nobody Knows” as well as “She’s Sure Taking It Well” and “If You Love Somebody.”

Throughout his life, Kevin worked closely with Make-A-Wish and traveled the country as a motivational speaker.

He had a good, strong heart,” Kevin’s mother tells CNN. “He’s not hurting anymore.”

A memorial service is being planned in Nashville, Tennessee. Details were not immediately available. In lieu of flowers, Sharp’s family requests that memorial donations be made to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
