LYNN ANDERSON DIES

NASHVILLE (AP) -- The singer of "(I Never Promised You A) Rose Garden" has died. Lynn Anderson's family says she passed away at a hospital in Nashville, on Thursday. A publicist says the cause of death was cardiac arrest. Anderson was 67. Anderson was the child of country songwriters and was a teen equestrian champion. She first hit the national spotlight as a singer on "The Lawrence Welk Show" in the late 1960s. She said in a 1987 Associated Press interview "Rose Garden" was such a hit in 1971 because it touched on emotions as the country came out of the Vietnam War.

LOLLAPALOOZA RETURNS TO CHICAGO

CHICAGO (AP) -- Borns knows that people didn't necessarily come to Lollapalooza to see him. That's why he believes the way to win over a festival crowd is to use pinatas and serenade the beejezus out of them. Twenty One Pilots were so excited about playing Lollapalooza, they went to the stage early to make sure it was just right. Nathan Willet and Matt Maust of Cold War Kids say it's best to prepare for any summer festival by planning for heat, but they admit they're backward because they wore jackets when it was 90 degrees. Sunday's shows were shut down for an hour and a half for weather concerns but no bands were cut. Headliners included Paul McCartney, Metallica, Sam Smith and Florence and the Machine.

PROPOSED BILLY JOEL HONOR SPARKS DEBATE IN NEW YORK'S LEGISLATURE

HICKSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) -- New York lawmakers are arguing whether to rename a quarter-mile road in Billy Joel's hometown after Joel. They agree he deserves it.
