A country star reveals he has cancer, Trace speaks out on the Gulf Coast oil spill,

Alabama's Randy Owen has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He made the announcement at his annual fan-club party in his hometown of Fort Payne, Alabama. His treatment, which he underwent in May, has been successful. Randy says, "I feel very good and positive about my future."

Trace Adkins spent six years working on off-shore oil rigs before becoming a country star and has plenty of thoughts on the Gulf Coast oil spill, including some advice to BP. He tells the Huffington Post, "Pay for your mess. That's all they can do. They're going to have to pay for the mess and probably change their name. They've pretty much soiled BP at this point." Trace was also on Anderson Cooper's CNN show last night. Here's the video:

Keith Urban has also expressed compassion for the residents of the Gulf region, who are losing their livelihood as the oil spill impedes businesses such as fishing and tourism. He says, "That's just really heartbreaking for me to see that because those people weren't at fault for all of that going on."

Congrats to the Rascal Flatts guys. They will get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year.
