Marc Cohn Shot in Head

Singer/songwriter Marc Cohn (perhaps best known for the song Walking in Memphis, which won him a best new artist Grammy) was shot in the head as part of an apparent car-jacking attempt in Denver on Monday. Surprisingly, he was treated and released (the bullet hit him squared in the center of his temple but did not go through his skull). Cohn is originally from Cleveland and is married to ABC TV’s Elizabeth Vargas. He is supposed to release a long-awaited follow-up to 1998’s Burning the Daze this year. Cohn has cancelled the final five stops on his tour.
