NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Johnny Cash is battling pneumonia again, a year after nearly dying from it.

Cash, 67, was listed in serious condition Wednesday at Baptist Hospital.

``He was readmitted on Sunday after spending several days here last week,'' hospital spokeswoman Jessica Etz said. ``He is not critical, his life is not in danger.''

The country legend was hospitalized twice in 1998 for pneumonia and has said he nearly died from it last fall.
