Opry legend Jim Ed Brown is getting a clean bill of health. The 81-year-old announced in September 2014 that he'd been diagnosed with lung cancer. After several months of chemotherapy and radiation, doctors told Brown in January that he was in remission. While in Arlington, Texas for the 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, Brown told "Taste of Country" that he just found out there are no cancer cells in his body. Brown is a 2015 inductee for the Country Music Hall of Fame. The ceremony will take place later this year.
