Bonnie Brown of Country Trio The Browns Diagnosed with Lung Cancer.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country singer Bonnie Brown of the sibling group The Browns, who are to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame later this year, says she has lung cancer.“It comes with great sadness that I have been diagnosed with Stage 4 Adenocarcinoma Right lung cancer,” she says in a statement. “I have recently undergone tests to determine the best type of treatment for this horrible disease. During the first few months of the year, the family rejoiced at the news that brother and lead singer Jim Ed had gained the upper hand in his battle with cancer, with the disease being in remission. The Browns, which included Jim Ed, Bonnie and Maxine Brown, had a huge crossover hit with their version of “The Three Bells” in 1959, as well as top country songs like “I Take the Chance” and “I Heard the Bluebirds Sing.”

I am surrounded by the love and support of my family and I am determined to live many more years.” The Browns were originally a duo featuring Jim Ed and older sibling Maxine. Future hits included “Here Today and Gone Tomorrow,” “The Old Lamplighter,” and “The Three Bells,” which topped not only the country charts, but the Hot 100 — and even hit No. 10 on the Hot R&B Sides listing.

The Browns’ final recording together, “When the Sun Says Hello to the Mountain,” appeared on Jim Ed’s final album, In Style Again, which was released in January.
